Janet Ziffers presentation at the symposium focused on the gold and blue Aurene glass of Frederick Carder and the similar glass produced by other American glassmakers of the same era. As space permits we will in coming days show many of the photos from her presentation, including a few from modern glassmakers who use the same techniques today.
