Glass Techniques Examined

As you explore the galleries at the National Liberty Museum in historic Philadelphia, you’ll immediately recognize that glass art takes many different forms in the world of contemporary art.

There are many different ways to work with the medium of glass.  To help visitors appreciate the glass art they see, we have created an extensive exhibit called “Techniques.”  It features a selected body of work by renowned glass artists to show the different ways glass is used for art, including casting, cold-working, flame-working, glassblowing, fusing & slumping, and various experimental techniques.
