Rakow Library Presents Corning Street Names

In April 2003, many of Corning's streets and alleys were renamed after glass terms, including types of glass developed by Frederick Carder. The project was initiated as part of the county-wide address updates for the new 911 system. Explore the meanings of each street name below.

Aurene Lane

Aurene is a type of ornamental glass with an iridescent surface made by spraying the glass with stannous chloride or lead chloride and reheating it under controlled atmospheric conditions. Aurene was developed by Frederick Carder at Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York, in 1904.

Crystal Lane

Crystal is a popular term for colorless lead glass, which has a high refractive index and consequently is particularly brilliant. In the United Kingdom, glass described as crystal must contain a defined percentage of lead oxide. Today, the word is often used to describe any fine glass tableware.

Pyrex Street

Pyrex is a type of borosilicate glass perfected in 1915 by W. C. Taylor and Eugene Sullivan of Corning Glass Works in Corning, New York. Pyrex rods can be used in flameworking.

Burmese Lane

Burmese is type of translucent yellow-shading-to-pink Art Glass made by the Mt. Washington Glass Company in New Bedford, Massachusetts, between 1885 and about 1895. Burmese was also made by other companies, including Steuben Glass Works in the 20th century.

Cintra Lane

Cintra is a type of decorative glass developed by Frederick Carder (1863-1963) at Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York, before 1917. Most Cintra glass was made by picking up chips of colored glass on the parison and then casing them with a thin layer of (usually) colorless glass.

Diatreta Lane

Diatreta is a term used by Frederick Carder (1863-1963) to describe openwork objects that he made by lost wax casting.

Dragon Lane

Frederick Carder often used dragons as a decorative motif.

Etruscan Lane

Etruria was the site of an early glass industry in northern Italy. Frederick Carder named one of his engraving patterns Etruscan.

Comment on the Carder Panel With Two Supports

The foliage on the flowers isn't right for a camellia. I'm no botanist, but the closest thing I can think of would be peonies. Michael Krumme
