Hooray for Higgins

The Higgins Studio, home of “modern miracles with everyday glass” was founded in 1948 by Michael and Frances Higgins who met at the Chicago Institute of Design. They were pioneers in the rediscovery and refinement of the ancient art of glass fusing. Originally the Studio operated out of the Higgins’ Chicago apartment, with kilns set up behind the sofa. This piece is a vintage bowl made between 1957-1964. For more information see link below:
