Modern Framed Fused Glass Wall Art by Higgins Studio, Signed, circa 1950

About

Glass artists Michael and Frances Higgins were considered to be pioneer's of the fused glass process. The Chicagan duo first developed their craft for Higgins Studio in 1948 and is still in production today. These unique pieces produced by the husband and wife team were featured in numerous displays as well as the pivotal exhibition "Glass 1959" at The Toledo Museum of Art. Today their work is considered highly collectible and is prized by both museums and private collectors alike. These visually arresting framed modern versions of still life artwork are a testament to Higgins' innovative technique. The abstract take on a classic composition parallels the emergence of Abstract Expressionism in the 1940s and 1950s. Beautifully decorated with vibrant colors against the pastel blue shade of the slender vessels depicted on a muted background of various transparency. Signed Higgins on both pieces. These exquisite pieces could be used individually or together throughout the home. They would also be great in a hospitality or corporate location, such as; a boutique restaurant, cocktail bar, hip eatery, workspace studio or in a luxe clothing emporium.
