' ' Harvey Littleton is the founder of the Studio Glass Movement. It was a long time founding: a generation passed between concep- tion and birth.The first object we can associate with Studio Glass is female: a nude torso made in 1942 by Littleton.... Finally, the baby dropped: near the center of America, in Ohio, in 1962, at the Toledo Museum of Art workshops (widely cited as the founding event of Studio Glass) led by Littleton." -William Warmus, Glass Magazine (fall 1998): 28.
