Gift of the Ben W. Heineman Sr. Family
Web Description: 
In 1977, Littleton retired from teaching and moved from Verona, Wisconsin, to Spruce Pine, North Carolina, where he lives today. In his new studio, he switched from melting his own colors to the German commercial color bars, which gave him a much broader palette. He began to make the "Loop" sculptures, in which he continued to explore color, movement, and form.
