Carlson creates laminated sculptures that combine pieces of glass he makes with sections of commercially produced safety glass and Vitrolite, as well as a variety of granites. He received his MFA from Alfred University, and was head of the crafts and sculpture programs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 1976 to 2003, where he worked for a number of years with José Chardiet. Carlson recently retired as endowed professor in the department of art and art history at the University of Miami, and works from his studio in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.—excerpted from the 2012 gallery guide for the RAM exhibition Into the Light: Illinois Glass, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Studio Glass Movement
