Holiday Ornament Tree

Holiday Ornament Tree

A Glittering Tradition

In 2008, the first annual Holiday Ornament Tree showcased more than 600 ornaments handmade by our Hot Glass Show staff. The tree was eight feet tall and four feet in diameter at the bottom. The next year, the tree grew to 14 feet tall, with more than 2,000 glass ornaments made by Museum glassmakers.

The Museum's glittering ornament tree has now become a holiday tradition — the perfect background for an annual holiday photo. The tree is joined each holiday season by other wonders in glass, including a holiday meal made entirely of glass, as well as a life-sized glass snowman and his family.

You can’t buy the ornaments on these trees, but you can Make Your Own Glass Ornament, year-round, at The Studio.
