The glass community lost one its pioneers when artist Tom McGlauchlin died on Monday, April 4. He had pancreatic cancer and passed away in his home in Old Orchard, Ohio. He was 76. He attended the glass workshops at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1962 that are now considered the birth of the Studio Glass movement and taught the second-ever glass course in an American university. He dedicated over 50 years to his art and teaching others how to harness glass.
