More Information

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, and inventive designs brought these age-old techniques into the modern era.

This year’s international Seminar presenters will explore cut and engraved glass influences from 1825–1945. The exploration of this topic is especially relevant in Corning, a town that 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.”
