    • Octobr 19-20 - Corning, New York
      ANNUAL SEMINAR ON GLASS 57th Annual Seminar on Glass October 19 and 20, 2018
      The Corning Museum of Glass’ 57th Annual Seminar will focus on the theme of cut and engraved glass. This year, Seminar coincides with noteworthy events at the Museum: the refresh of our Crystal City gallery (which opened May 5, 2018), and the special exhibition Glass of the Architects: Vienna, 1900–1937, a cooperation of the MAK and LE STANZE DEL VETRO (June 23, 2018 – January 7, 2019).
      Cutting and engraving are ancient techniques, but from the late 19th through the early 20th century, their application in glass decorating flourished. Across the world, masterful craftsmanship, combined with inventive designs, brought these traditional techniques into the modern era. This year’s Seminar presenters will explore these international influences from 1825–1945. The exploration of this topic is especially relevant in Corning, a town which emerged in the 19th century as one of the premier centers for cut and engraved glass in the United States and became known as “The Crystal City.”
