A popular account of English-born Corning glassmaker Frederick Carder and his life-long involvement with glass. Carder was the director of Steuben Glass Works in Corning, NY, for nearly 30 years. The catalog features objects made or designed by Carder, the brilliant glassmaker whose innumerable technical and artistic achievements in glass during his 100 years (1863-1963) had a significant impact on American glassmaking. The book includes illustrations and descriptions of Steuben Glass objects never before published, as well as works made in Carder’s later studio years. The objects included in the book are the property of The Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum, also in Corning, NY, and the catalog was co-published by both institutions.
