  • March 14 - Natick, Massachusetts
    Founsers Chapter, National American Glass Club, Ltd.
    March 14, Wednesday AM Program: A wee bit of Green and Irish Glass Led by Founders Members In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day when we are all Irish, let's celebrate by displaying our green glass pieces along with any color of glass from Ireland. PM Program: Neodymium Glass It's pink. No, it's blue! No, wait, now it's pink again! Glass made with the rare earth metal neodymium has the extraordinary property of changing color under different light sources. In natural light it's pink. In fluorescent light it's blue. Neodymium was discovered by an Austrian chemist in 1885, and its first commercial use was for coloring glass at the Moser glassworks in Vienna beginning in 1927. Other glass companies quickly developed neodymium formulae of their own, including the American companies Heisey, Fostoria, Cambridge, Steuben, and Tiffin. Please join our presentation to see these colors for yourself. You won't believe your eyes! No, wait, you will!

    Founder's Chapter, National American Glass Club, Ltd.
    April 11, Wednesday Luncheon and Silent Auction: Our meal will be catered and we will hold our Silent Auction throughout the day. PM Program: Vaseline Glass Presented by Alice Saville Past President of Founders Chapter Vaseline Glass. Doesn't sound very appealing. Uranium Glass. Even worse. But wait before you judge. It all started almost 200 years ago with Franz Riedel in Bohemia and continues on until today, albeit with a few interruptions due to wars and shortages. The bright green glow produced from this glassware is created by the addition of uranium oxide and is most extreme under a black (UV) light. The base color of the glass varies from opaque green to transparent yellow, but the brilliant, shocking green glow under ultraviolet light is the same. Come and experience this fantastic trick of nature and share in the unbridled passion that so many of us have for Yellow/Green Vaseline glass. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held at: Morse Institute Library 14 East Central Street, Natick, MA 01760 • 508.647.6520 www.morseinstitute.org

  • May 16-19 - Murano, Vemice, Italy
    GLASS ART SOCIETY SELECTS MURANO, ITALY AS THE HOST CITY OF THE 2018 GAS CONFERENCE
    The Glass Art Society (GAS) is pleased to announce its selection of Murano, Italy as the host city of the 47th annual conference. From May 16 – 19, 2018, attendees will partake in highly anticipated GAS conference programs including glass demonstrations and lectures on inspiring glass topics, and they will also enjoy special programming unique to Murano while surrounded by the beauty of the region of Venice.
    The current Italian Steering Committee is comprised of artists and community art supporters Cesare Toffolo, Lucio Bubacco, Davide Salvadore, Marina Tagliapietra, Roberto Donà, Adriano Berengo, the Consorzio Promovetro Murano, and is led by glass maestro Lino Tagliapietra. “I am excited to have GAS in my native city of Murano, as it is a symbol of union between the two places that have allowed me to become the glassblower I am today,” said Tagliapietra. “This conference will be a wonderful and historical event.”
    GAS selected Murano, in part, for the prominent place the region has had in the history of glass art worldwide. There is also a strong connection between artists in Murano and the glass community in the United States. Additionally, Murano has been the highest response from GAS members when asked where they would most like a future GAS conference to be held. “Every year we survey our members on their interests and they have been consistent in expressing their desire to travel to Murano and Venice for a future conference as their top destination outside of the United States,” said Pamela Koss, executive director of the Glass Art Society. “We are elated to invite our members from around the world to meet in Murano and enjoy a truly special conference in an iconic and significant place for glass art.” The 2018 GAS conference is sponsored in part by the Berengo Foundation and the artists of the Italian Steering Committee.
    Murano/Venice will be the first time the Glass Art Society has taken its annual conference outside of the United States since 2005 when the conference travelled to Adelaide, Australia.

This convention will feature a display room of Beauty and the Beast (You have to be there to see this unique display). Those of you attending are invited and strongly encouraged to bring a piece you think is a real beauty and one that is a beast in some way – either it’s ugly, your spouse bought it and you didn’t like it, or perhaps you paid too much. You are encouraged to send a list to Sherry Cyza (Find her info on our board members’ list on the website), Display Room Coordinator, so she may organize her thoughts for the display room. Those of you bringing the items might give a little synopsis of why they are beauty and the beast. Other seminars or presentations will be given by Don and Barb Chamberlain and the banquet presentation will be by Carl and Eunice Booker. We haven’t had a game in years, so Brian Foster has something fun and interesting in his Game Show.
    One of the highlights of the convention will be the auction of Nancy and the late Bernie May and Emmett and Dorothy Morgan, which should feature a beautiful array of carnival glass.
