Corning Museum of Glass
The Corning Museum of Glass is joining the fun! CMOG's Flameworking Demos are live, narrated demonstrations of glassworking at a 5,000 degree Fahrenheit gas- and oxygen-powered torch. Expert flameworkers demonstrate the glassmaking technique of forming objects from rods and tubes of glass at a torch, and talk you through the process. You’ll see the flameworker shape the softened glass into any variety of shapes, from glass animals to beads to ornaments, sculptures, and vessels. The flameworking technique probably dates back to ancient times. It was certainly known in France and Venice in the 15th century, and it has been practiced ever since. Originally, the source of the flame was an oil or paraffin lamp. Today, flameworkers use torches fueled with gas.
