Meet the Team

Hot Glass Demos, which can be seen at the Museum, on the road, or at sea on Celebrity Cruises features a diverse and talented group of master glassmakers. Each of the demonstrators highlighted here narrate and demonstrate the incredible art of live glassblowing around the world. In addition, the Museum offers Flameworking Demos in its Innovation Center every day, in which some of the most talented flameworkers around showcase the craft of making glass with a torch.
