The wonders of molten glass have amazed and beguiled since the time of the Mesopotamians. Though the Venetians are the acknowledged masters, glass artists worldwide and especially in America are pushing the boundaries of technique, style and shape. Inspired by holdings in our Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery and in our National Museum of American History’s ceramics and glass collection, we offer a prized assortment of functional art.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
