Combining the work of American artists with important pieces from international artists, RAM’s Studio Glass collection documents worldwide developments in glass since 1964 when Harvey K. Littleton and Dominick Labino held workshops on the grounds of the Toledo Museum of Art. These workshops brought blown glass out of industry and into the artist’s studio.
Because RAM has attempted to document the evolution of this movement from the beginning to the present, its collection contains artists and bodies of work not frequently found in public museums. Masterpieces in the collection include Harvey Littleton, Ginny Ruffner, Joel Philip Myers, William Morris, Dale Chihuly, and more.
Below is a sample of RAM’s growing glass collection.
