50 years ago, my wife and I wandered into Wicker World in Dearborn.   The furniture was gone; but an art gallery was emerging.  Paintings, sculpture, prints, ceramics, jewelry, and glass began to fill the space.  Set up by three young interpreters:  Ferdinand Hampson and, Linda and Tom Boone.  After helping to shift a few things around, I inquired if there was any interest in bronze sculpture, produced during my BFA program at the Cleveland Institute of Art.  I also had glass that I was blowing at the Toledo Museum Glass Studio.  “Yes,” they said.

Probably none of us imagined what would happen.   Glass became a major component of my work.   Habatat Gallery became the most prominent gallery representing the best of contemporary glass art.  May we all enjoy this anniversary and look forward to the future.
