Web Description: 
Transparency, illusion, color, and the light that enables them are ideas that Michael Taylor has chosen to spend a career in exploring. While cut, optical glass can come across as a cold, unforgiving material, Taylor gives it warmth with color, which radiates and reflects from the central core of each of his sculptures. His works are not derived from a mathematical base or theoretical bent, but are solidly based in the natural world.

For 20 years, The Studio has been a starting point for emerging artists and an incubator for new work by established artists. The works on view in this exhibition are part of the Museum’s permanent collection and were created by artists who have taught or who have been artists in residence at The Studio. Additional pieces by this artistic community can be found in the Glass Collection Galleries, where they are identified by The Studio at 20 symbol. The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass is a community of artists who come together to learn, create, and teach. Since opening its doors in 1996, The Studio has welcomed more than 20,000 students, instructors, and resident artists from around the world. What sets this teaching institution apart from others are the unique combination of facilities, the talented and dedicated staff, the inspiration of the Museum’s rich historical glass collection, and the significant holdings and staff assistance in the Rakow Research Library. In addition to being an internationally renowned glass teaching facility, The Studio is a place where artists come to make their work. A residency program supports 10–12 artists per year. Artists are selected through an application process and live and work in Corning for one month, fully supported by the staff of The Studio. The Studio is open to the public, so please stop in during your visit to the Museum. Learn more about classes, special programs, artist residencies, and instructors at The Studio.
