Michael Higgins ran the design department at the Chicago Institute of Design, where Frances Stewart was a graduate student. They met and, as Michael described, had not so much a whirlwind romance as a dust storm!” Frances and Michael married in 1948 and left the field of education to join the handful of artists working in studio glass. They developed unique methods of manipulating commercial plate glass that combined enameling, slumping, and laminating to produce decorative tableware.
