Chronicles:Tea Time: The Making Of The Pyrex Teapot

by Whitney Birkett

Im a local girl. My great-grandfather blew the worlds largest light bulb at Corning Glass Works A factory, just across the river from where I sit at the Museum. The men and women behind the glass fascinate me. So, when I came across early Pyrex brand teapots, I couldnt wait to share my findings.

The renowned designer Frederick Carder designed the first Pyrex teapots in 1922. He had begun his glassmaking career at Stevens & Williams in England and co-founded Steuben Glass Works with Thomas G. Hawkes in 1903. He would become the art director of Corning Glass Works in 1932.
