Synopsis: The marvellous fused glassware of the Higgins Glass Studio first captivated buyers in the 1950s and 1960s, and continues to delight collectors today. With its arresting mix of geometric and curved lines, and bold use of colours, Higgins glass transformed ordinary table and giftware, from chip bowls and cake-stands to candleholders and cigarette boxes, into something vibrant and exciting. Useful as well as attractive, the designs of artists Frances and Michael Higgins harnessed vivid imagination to innate practicality. Over 750 colour and vintage photographs feature hundreds of pieces not shown before. Newly discovered promotional photos, original designs, and advertising materials and extensive commentary by Frances Higgins and other Studio personnel highlight the informative, entertaining text. A personal view of the creation of Higgins glass is presented. The Studio today showcases talent that continues to build on the Higgins tradition. Current price estimates are also included. The result is a work destined to appeal to all with an interest in design and crafts of the mid-20th century.
