This was made by Harry Boyer, a native of Whitehouse, Ohio, Harry Boyer attended Bowling Green State University in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Harry originally planned to obtain a degree in science at BGSU and pursue art as a hobby, however that all changed when he took an Introduction to Glassblowing course with Dominick Labino (1910–1987). It was during his class with Labino that Harry began to understand the fascinating relationship between art and science and ultimately decided to focus his studies on sculpture and glass.
