Founders of American Studio Glass: Dominick Labino presents documents selected from Labino’s extensive archive, held by the Rakow Research Library, and glass from the Museum’s collection. Materials range from copies of photographs of Labino’s “smallest engine” to samples of the Johns Manville #475 marbles that studio artists melted in their furnaces. Labino strove to create new colors and to develop forms that express the fluid quality of glass. These goals are evident in his Emergence and Paperweight vase series. His “hot cast” sculptures are represented by sketches for Icosahedron, created for the Mathematical Sciences Building at Bowling Green (Ohio) State University.
