Glittering Glass: 1500 Years of European Glass

Post Time:Feb 25,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:433

The Glittering Glass exhibition focuses on European glass in the period between 400 and 1900.

Glittering Glass, 1500 Years of European Glass offers a comprehensive overview of glass production over the fifteen centuries concerned.

To give full scope for completeness, the exhibition is divided into two periods: Glittering Glass I will run from 14 March to 28 June and Glittering Glass II from 4 July to 1 November.

Between the two shows, the relevant exhibition areas will be closed for the change-over.

Glittering Glass I will feature not only the elegant glass of Venice and glass produced à la Façon de Venise in countries like France and the Netherlands, but also the green Waldglas, rummers, utility glass and Spielerei of northern Europe.

Glittering Glass II will showcase the results of the various decorative techniques used over the period, including enamelling, cutting, diamond-point engraving, wheel-engraving and - last but not least - the stipple engraving technique with which Dutch glassworkers achieved such feats of decoration in extraordinarily sophisticated and artistically engraved objects that are a delight to the eye.
