The couple began fusing glass in their Chicago apartment by using kilns in their living room. Everyday items, such as bowls and plates, were transformed into works of art incorporating geometric and abstract lines with bold colors.⁠⠀


Promoted as “an exclamation point in your decorating scheme”, this unique blend of artistry and practicality was a major hit in the realm of home decoration. Higgins glass was sold by many major retailers such as - Marshall Field’s, Georg Jensen, and Bullock’s Wilshire.⁠⠀
