Higgins Glass Rondelay Screen
Higgins glass typifies the american studio glass movement in the 1950´s. Independent artists gained the ability to operate their own studios, controlling the output directly by there own hands. The Higgins´ were incredibly prolific, and produced volumes of incredibly imaginativew work. Their most desirable pieces, are the round and square glass rondelays that were most ofetn joined consecutively to form large screens. This set is composed of 27 individual fused glass elements, each connected to its neighbor by way of the inset steel rings. Each pane is hand formed and features natural bubbling and color variations.
