Love and glass: A day at Riverside's Higgins Glass
RIVERSIDE — Louise and Jonathan Wimmer are continuing a tradition that has deep roots in Riverside, and one that continues to branch out in quite a few directions as well.
The mother-and-son team make up Higgins Glass Studio, 33 E. Quincy, in Riverside, entrusted to the Wimmers to carry on the art crafted by their long-time mentors, Fran and Michael Higgins, who began the company in 1948.
The Wimmers design, cut, decorate and create collectable pieces of fused glass. The pieces – from vases, to bowls, to trays and plates, trees and more - have become a modern-day interpretation of an art form that dates back centuries, but came back in popularity in the 1960s.
