Join Charles Sable, Curator of Decorative Arts at the Henry Ford Museum, as he describes the science behind studio glass and the talented individuals who made it possible.
The science and chemistry used in the creation of studio glass goes back to the discovery of glass in ancient times. Throughout the Renaissance in Italy and in other European nations, recipes and techniques were developed that inform today’s studio glass artists. These were further developed by American glass innovators like Louis Comfort Tiffany and the talented glass artists at Steuben in Corning, New York.
This special guest lecture will be presented in conjunction with the current exhibition on display in the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery, “Global Glass: A Survey of Form and Function.”
Event is free to the public.
Complimentary refreshments provided.
