Museum Displays Rare Colored Cut Glass Pieces

Cut glass objects that include color are rare finds, but visitors to The Corning Museum of Glass will be able to view exceptional examples of colored cut glass in a new temporary exhibition that opened Tuesday and runs until Nov. 1 in the west bridge area of the museum.

The museum says, “Splitting the Rainbow: Cut Glass in Color,” will showcase some of the most beautiful and unusual examples of 19th and 20th century European and American colored cut glass vases, drinking glasses, and other decorative and functional pieces.Most of the more than 75 objects in the exhibition will be drawn from the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass.

Some of the pieces on display were made of one layer of transparent colored glass, but most were created using two or three layers of glass - casing or layering colored glass over high quality clear glass to create a “blank.” Using revolving stone and/or steel wheels, glass craftsmen then cut patterns in the colored top layer or layers of the blank to reveal the colorless glass beneath.
