Sidney Hutter received his M.F.A. at Massachusetts College of Art and his B.S. in Art at Illinois State University. He also attended the Lowell Institute of MIT and was one of the early members of the Pilchuck School. Sid was among the first artists in the world who experimented with laminated glass techniques and is considered a pioneer in the American Studio Glass Movement.
His works are included in many important public collections including The American Craft Museum, NYC, The Corning Museum, Corning, NY, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The White House Collection in Washington, DC.
Each piece is created using sophisticated and refined processes for cutting, polishing and laminating commercially available plate glass. Throughout the years Sidney has developed a unique design style - influenced and cultivated from his passion for art and architecture and melded with an interest in the commercial glass and adhesive technology industries.
