60 Years - Glass Conservation

The Museum's glass conservators care for a collection of nearly 50,000 objects spanning 35 centuries. In addition to addressing issues such as crizzling (glass deterioration), they restore damaged pieces. One example is the Tiffany lamp shown here. It came to the Museum in many pieces of various sizes—from tiny chips to large fragments. It took several months to restore the lamp. This video features Stephen Koob, conservator for The Corning Museum of Glass.
