Conservation Live Stream: Glass from a Conservator's Perspective

In this live stream from the Conservation Lab, watch as Steve Koob, chief conservator; Astrid van Giffen, associate conservator; and Lianne Uesato, assistant conservator share the issues and concerns that conservators keep an eye out for when managing a collection of glass objects that spans from ancient to contemporary.

The conservators will show detailed examples of the condition issues of archaeological objects, how they handle glass with sensitive surfaces, the challenges of glass with previous repairs, and the potential difficulties of caring for contemporary glass.
