Jane Spillman's presentation focuses on the similarities between American and English blown, cut, and pressed glassware during the 18th and 19th centuries. The British influence on American made glass was primarily the result of skilled English glassworkers who came to America to set up glass factories of their own. It was common for them to use techniques and patterns used in England. Some of the glassworkers she discusses are Henry Stiegel, Benjamin Bakewell, Thomas Layton, William Gillinder, James Hoare, Thomas Hawkes, Frederick Carder, Joseph Locke, Joseph Webb, Frederick Shirley, Harry Northwood.
Jutta-Annette Page reviews the influences of Bohemian engravers on American engraved glass.
