New Book “Harvey K. Littleton: A Life in Glass”

Readers  You'll want to immediately purchase this book.  We met Harvey Littleton at a Gas Arts Society meeting - you'll recall from a blog post
Harvey worked in West Virginia during Joel Myers's ART IN THE FACTORY program.  Harvey Littleton was one of the distinguished glass artist
who spend time with factory workers.  HJH

This book starts with the first glassblowing class ever to be taught at a university in the United States,
and is the biography of Harvey K. Littleton and thereby the American Studio Glass Movement, which he is credited as founding, 50 years ago.

The book is currently available on Amazon

Dean Six
Henry Halem
Harvey Littleton
soon you'll have us educated
and we will no longer need to read the Heart of Glass.
No more than three books per year OK - - I'd rather spend my dollars on glass.

Off subject.
Hilary do you watch dancin with stars?
I recall reading you were a dancer, if you watch who is your favorite dancer.
What 'stars' do you like.
All this glass talk makes me desire a stiff drink and a dance floor or TV remote.
