Made at a 4,000°F torch - Flameworking at The Corning Museum of Glass

Watch as skilled flameworkers, glass artists who work with a torch, melt rods and tubes in a 4,000°F flame and then shape the softened glass into any variety of objects. Flameworkers can create anything from glass animals and beads to sculptures and ornate goblets—from delicate decorations to vibrant colors and intricate patterns. At The Studio and in the Museum, flameworking is an ancient artform that is proudly on display at The Corning Museum of Glass.
