    Ennion and His Legacy: Mold-Blowing Glass from Ancient Rome

    Saturday, May 16th 2015 - All Day at Corning Museum of Glass
    One Museum Way

    At the end of the first century B.C., glassmakers working in the environs of Jerusalem discovered that glass could be inflated at the end of a hollow tube. This technical achievement—glassblowing—made the production of glass vessels quicker and easier, and allowed glassmakers to develop new shapes and decorative techniques. One technique, inflating glass in molds carved with decorative and figural designs, was used to create a variety of vessel shapes with high-relief patterns. Ennion was the first glassmaker to sign his glass objects by incorporating his name into the mold’s design; he stands among a small group of glass workers whose names have come down to us from antiquity. This exhibitions features rare examples of glass by Ennion and his contemporaries.
