Web Description: 
Littleton, who founded the American Studio Glass movement with the glass research scientist Dominick Labino, was born and raised in Corning. During the 1980s, Littleton created new forms for glass sculpture by casing layers of barium/potash glass tinted with different Kugler colors. The sense of arrested movement is characteristic of Littleton’s sculptures of this period, as is the way in which the colors are multiplied and magnified inside the glass.
