Passing of Harvey K. Littleton

The Corning Museum of Glass just announced 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."

"Donations in Harvey Littleton’s name can be made to The Hospice and Palliative Care Center of Mitchell County that provided invaluable support to his family in the care for Harvey, and/or to the Penland School of Crafts "Harvey and Bess Littleton Scholarship Fund" that provides one full scholarship for a two-week summer session in hot glass."
