With an undergraduate degree from Illinois State University, Sidney Hutter visited the Pilchuck School in 1975. Four years later, while working on an MFA degree at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Hutter began experimenting with commercial plate glass to recreate forms of traditional vessels through lamination colored with dyes. The adhesive used to hold the plates together is cured with ultraviolet light. Sidney developed machines specifically needed for cutting, grinding and polishing each sheet of glass. The result of his laminating methods offers the viewer experience with negative and positive spaces that display different forms both inside and outside of the vessel. Museums and collectors of consequence throughout the world treasure Sidney R. Hutter’s glass.
