What Is CMOG Doing During the Pandemic

From CMoG with Love: Five Feel-Good Stories

The Corning Museum of Glass may be closed temporarily to guests and staff alike while the COVID-19 pandemic affects our community, but that doesnt mean the work stops. Our staff and their families have been hard at work in many wonderful ways to ensure that they are doing everything they can to protect our institution, our collections, our communities, and ourselves while maintaining our position as a world leader on glass.

Here are just a few of the things that weve been up to. Click here to read the rest of the CMoG story.

Purpose of Covered Vases

Good morning Alan,

I response to the opposite commentary, I would venture to say that once one was finished using a covered vase to hold flowers, it would become a completed Decorative Art object by replacing the cover. This would be the case of these covered vases which are minimal in form and then placed in an Art Deco setting. Just MHO.


David P. Donaldson, MFA


Please note that even though I am not an expert in glass terminology, there are a number of terms which need clarification. In all my years of appraising, I have not seen or heard the term covered vases. Logically, why would anyone cover a vase?

The Cleveland Museum of Art

As one of her research interests, Gail Bardhan, retired librarian from the Rakow Research Library at CMoG, kept a list of American museums with Steuben glass in their collection. I have used her research to find examples of Steuben glass in the collection of The Cleveland Museum of Art. Scott Hansen
