  • May 8-11 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    National American Glass Club, 35th Annual Seminar.
    Our 35th Annual Glass Seminar takes us to Pittsburgh, western Pennsylvania, and the Ohio River Valley with its abundant glass sites and long history of glassmaking. In order to take advantage of the many glass-rich opportunities, we have added an additional, optional day trip. Realizing that some of you may have recently visited some of the sites but not others, you can choose which of the day trips to include in the usual 3-day seminar (any 2 day trips plus Saturday) or opt to attend all 4 days offered.
    • Each of the museums that we will be visiting played an important part in the Ohio River Valley glassmaking legacy. You will learn how these companies produced handmade glass, ranging from well-known, large production lines to limited, almost one-of-a-kind pieces using innovative techniques of color and form. We will discover many unique and beautiful examples as we tour each of the museums.
    • National Museum of Cambridge Glass, Cambridge, Ohio, displays glass made by the Cambridge Glass Company, in operation from 1873 to 1958
    • National Imperial Glass Museum, Bellaire, Ohio, displays glass made by the Imperial Glass Corporation, in operation from 1904 to 1984
    • Fostoria Glass Museum, Moundsville, West Virginia, displays glass made by Fostoria Glass Company, in operation from 1891 to 1986
    • The Oglebay Institute Glass Museum, Wheeling, West Virginia, has a 3,500-piece collection, including examples of Northwood, Hobbs-Brockunier, Central, and more glass of the 19th- and 20thcentury companies that made Wheeling such an important glass producing area. Just two of the highlights we will be seeing are the stunning pieces of Wheeling Peachblow and the famous Sweeney Punch Bowl, at 5’ tall and 225 lbs., the largest cut glass piece in the world.
    • Visits to other locales and a stunning private collection plus a day of seminar presentations. Go to http://www.glassclub.org/seminar.htm for complete details.
