Glass Holiday Feast
Stop in to see a festive holiday meal inspired by the warmth and kinship shared at tables throughout the holiday season. The Museum is happy to announce that the glass holiday feast will be on display from November 18 – January 4. Created by the Hot Glass Show team, the holiday feast features meal staples like turkey, ham,  mashed potatoes, and green beans. Each year the feast grows as gaffers create and bring their favorite dishes to the table. New this year is a fruit bowl created by Chris Rochelle.
