Clean lines, geometric shapes, and bright colors characterize Art Deco glass from the Huchthausen Collection in this exhibition organized by Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington.
Glass by iconic Art Deco studios is among the artwork collected by David Huchthausen, a glass artist with Wisconsin roots whose work altered the history of contemporary glass. Emerging in contrast to Art Nouveau’s ornate style amid World War I austerity, Art Deco glass fell out of favor after World War II, and regained popularity in the 1970s.
