In Memoriam: Erwin Eisch

World-renowned glass artist and painter Erwin Eisch died at the age of 94 in Zwiesel, Germany on January 24. He and his wife had celebrated their 60th anniversary in early January. Eisch was a pioneer German artist who was considered a founder of studio glass in Europe and the world. He was also a painter, draughtsman, and printmaker. Eisch’s non-traditional approach to glassmaking had a profound impact during the formative years of the American Studio Glass movement, and his relationship with American glass pioneer Harvey K. Littleton forged an important link between European and American studio artists working in glass. Read more about Eisch in this post from the Washington Glass School
