After its successful debut at @lestanzedelvetro in 2016, the exhibition 'Glass of the Architects: Vienna 1900-1937' will be at the @corningmuseum from tomorrow until 7 January 2019. More than 150 iconic works from the MAK collection will recreate a very special period of glass design and production in Austria. ⠀

Restoration of W.O. DECKER is continuing, and we are on track to have her back in the water and on her way to meet Corning Museum of Glass’ GlassBarge. While Decker is being restored, the Seaport Museum will be operating JAY BEE V as the tug for CMoGs Glassbarge. JAY BEE V is a modern version of W.O. DECKER, an unassuming workhorse that gets the job done, having served her whole life as an assist tug at a shipyard, moving tugs, barges, and all manner of other vessels. Freshly refurbished, JAY BEE V will be joining the GlassBarge in Waterford, this weekend.

W.O. DECKER will be heading up North to join the GlassBarge as soon as she leaves shipyard, so stay tuned, right here, for updates regarding her launching, and her transit up to the Erie Canal.

Road Trip: @corningmuseum Where to begin? I cannot remember the last time I felt so completely overwhelmed by a collection, and so impressed by the diversity of the activities and the audience. It’s certainly the only museum where Mennonite families and Chinese tourists are watching glassblowing demonstrations together. Let’s start with the history of American glass in two photos-
-
1. 21st Century Dystopia: Misha Kahn, "Ponchan" Chandelier (2017) and Thaddeus Wolfe, 2016 Rakow Commission. Curator Susie Silbert taking no prisoners with her acquisitions! -
-
2. 18th Century Colonial Life: Bottle, Wistarburgh Glassworks, Salem County, New Jersey, ca. 1745-55. One of the very few pieces with ironclad provenance proving that it came from America's first glass factory. It's hard to believe, but 125 years ago this bottle would have been exhibited at the Met with the same pride of place as a Rembrandt-
