Title:

Daniel Schwoerer & Lani McGregor | "Early Years of Bullseye" | June 14, 2012 | Toledo Museum of Art

Description:

Run Time: 47:52

Dan Schwoerer, President of Bullseye Glass Company, described co-founding the company during the mid-70's recession, with "stagflation" of 11% and interest rates of 23%. Collaborating with artists, the company developed compatible glasses for kilnwork and innovative methods for their use.

The presentation was part of the GAS conference.  In recognition of the Toledo Museum of Art's role as the cradle of the American Studio Glass Movement, the Glass Art Society held its 2012 conference in Toledo, Ohio. In 1962, two experimental glass workshops held at the Museum proved that glass was a medium suitable for the expression of artistic ideas in a studio environment. They launched a movement that was propelled by an unprecedented collective enthusiasm and since has turned into an international phenomenon that continues to inspire experimentation.
