New Position at the Corning Museum of Glass

I am delighted to have begun work for the Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York! My new position is Senior Program Manager for the Studio. The Corning Museum represents the very best in glass scholarship and research experience. Throughout my career, I’ve been impressed with the quality and impact of the Museum's projects and programs. It's a real privilege to be invited to join this exceptional team. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I’m looking forward to making a contribution and shaping the conversations around glass.

Cameo Research, next steps

The next step for the Roman cameo research is to begin studio testing. Bullseye glass have formulated the Roman glass recipe for the white and the blue cameo glasses. Our plan is to see if we can replicate the pressing - pate de verre process that we think was used to produce these fascinating pieces of Roman crafts. The image is a high resolution CT scan of a cameo fragment in the collection of the Australian National University. The detail shows the back of the white glass at the point of contact with the blue.
