Fritz Dreisbach has had an all-encompassing knowledge and history of glass in his career as an artist, glass technician, lecturer, and one of the founders of the Glass Art Society. He studied glass at the University of Wisconsin with Dale Chihuly under the direction of Harvey Littleton, a founder of the studio glass movement and a fellow artist included in TMA’s collection. Dreisbach also became the first director of the Glass Studio at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1967. Footed Yellow Zig-Zag is only one example of Dreisbach’s fine craftsmanship and interest in traditional Venetian glass techniques.
