Harvey Littleton (June 14, 1922 – December 13, 2013
« on: December 16, 2013, 06:37:23 PM »
From the Corning Museum of Glass:

We are saddened to tell you of the passing of Harvey K. Littleton.

Littleton was an internationally acclaimed artist who played an integral role in the founding of the American Studio Glass Movement. His work continually awes those who encounter it on display in our museum. His art and his approach to the material has inspired many generations of artists working in glass.

Sad news indeed.
But let's be thankful for his tremendous legacy to Art Glass - in which he will live on, for as long as mankind survives.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thank you for passing on the news Adam, however sad.

As Sue says, his work will last forever, as, of course, will his place in the history of glass making.
