The Story of The Crystal City|
Posting Number 3028 Date: 08/30/18 Return to Posting List
At the turn of the 20th century, Corning was known to the world as the Crystal City. CMOGs Hot Glass Demo Team will share how the art of glassmaking, and particularly the art of cut glass, came to be forever tied with a small town in upstate New York.
This demo combines history with technique as the modern glassmakers demonstrate the art form and tell the story of how Corning came to be a world-wide artistic leader.
The Hot Glass Demo Team plans to make a special piece for the Carder Steuben Club auction, held Saturday evening at the Symposium banquet. ÿ
This will be a fascinating program! Make your plans to attend the Symposium now at www.cardersteubenclub.org
