Happy Friday everyone. Today I am showing you more of the glass art from the Corning Glass Museum in Corning, New York (rather than any of my own art).
I showed you some earlier this week, and if you want to see it, here's the link: Glass Museum part 1.
This museum was huge, and although we spent several hours there, we didn't see it all. I ended up taking photos of just some things I liked or found interesting. Here's some more from the large art glass exhibit. It was displayed in this very large stark white hall which made it all the more avant garde I think.
How about this glass bomb and some dynamite?
It's amazing the different colors, textures and shapes an artist can make with glass. Talk about a versatile medium.
And this one was really cool. Black glass rope, right?
Glass beads to make rope. It must have taken forever to make this piece.
Bird and then HUGE glass fruit, not that you can tell that it is that big here. Each piece was definitely bigger than my hand.
There is a glass piece similar to this one at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
And then we can move into the History of Glass gallery, which was even bigger. There was glass from the earliest human civilizations (that used glass) right up to modern glass. I think someone could spend an entire day just in the gallery. It was really quite complete as far as I could tell. I think I photograph maybe 1/10,000 of the items, and I still took well over 60 photos just in the gallery. I will wait to share those another day
Hope you enjoyed the views.
