Event Description

Unexpected Color: A Journey Through Glass features the Thomas N. Armstrong III Collection of Steuben Glass, recently donated to the Newark Museum. The exhibition offers a window into the science, craft, and art of this lesser-known, colorful glass that was made and used by two visionaries. Frederick Carder, co-founder and designer of Steuben Glass Works, and Thomas N. Armstrong III, prominent museum director, loved color, organic forms, and art. Discover how Carder experimented with glassblowing techniques to create vibrant jewel-toned colors in glass. Follow that glass through multiple settings as Armstrong collected and used the vibrant bowls, vases, and candlesticks in his homes, in a variety of traditional and contemporary settings.
