This past July the Corning Museum of Glass a new six-month blog series “Women in Glasshouses.” https://blog.cmog.org/2020/07/02/women-in-glasshouses-a-new-blog-series/
The bi-weekly series of blog posts highlighted the many ways that women have contributed to the glass industry in the 100 years since the ratification of the 19th amendment.
I wrote a post focused on women using the technique of lampworking, first working from home, then in American industry, particularly where women dominated the field assembling early lightbulbs: https://blog.cmog.org/2020/08/06/women-in-glasshouses-women-at-the-lamp/
You can find the entire series of posts at the following link: https://blog.cmog.org/?s=women+in+glasshouses&submit=Search
These posts may change the way you see glass – from cut glass and 50s design to Pyrex and light bulbs!
