Frances Higgins, "Drop-out" Bowl, 1988, fused and enameled glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the James Renwick Alliance, 1989.7.2
Frances Higgins experimented with glass as early as 1942 by bending and shaping flat glass in a kiln. She sandwiches eye-catching hues of enamel between layers of translucent glass. The gold pigment applied to "Drop-out" Bowl enhances its overlapping colors and textured form.
