Harvey Littleton successfully developed methods which allowed individuals to work efficiently and economically with studio glass. The use of small furnaces and low-cost raw materials made glass work viable for artists and encouraged its development in American art schools and universities.
Littleton's work in glass exploits its sculptural potential, using simple forms that emphasise the optical qualities, intense colour, refractive potential and fluidity of the material.
