“Birds of a Feather Captured In Glass”
We have an interesting collection of glass birds, whole or in part, and related bird images on glass that make for exciting gazing when you visit our Gallery over the following six month period. We’ve collected some of the smallest figures to the most amazing objects of bird images that you will want to see for yourselves. Birds are defined as warm blooded, two legged, egg-laying vertebrates with feathers and wings. We’ve gone a bit farther to include the chicken, fowl, pheasant and eagle among our stone cold objects of interest.
When one looks at the different postures of the current exhibit of birds, we find that its truly a reflections of how the individual saw a subject in its original form and how he “captured it in glass”.
We don’t always know who made a particular piece in our exhibit, so we welcome your knowledge on any of the subjects on display.
With the exhibition in the Gallery, we also offer a viewing in our auditorium of the glass history in Lancaster and Fairfield County. Various displays of glass making are also available and are noted by our docents during your tour of our museum.
Our hot glass studio is where you will want to use your imagination on what kind of bird could be created there! Currently there are none. But…never say never!
We hope you will join us soon and explore the wonderful displays and informative features of our museum.
