2010 Glass Ornament Tree

The Corning Museum of Glass lit its third annual glass ornament tree on November 18, during our 2300 event, kicking off the holiday season at the Museum. Seeing this tree in person is guaranteed to inspire holiday cheer, not to mention intense awe. More than 2000 ornaments, handmade by the Museum's glassmakers, decorate the 14-foot tree. It takes a crew of half a dozen people from our GlassMarket to construct the tree each year. The tree is on view annually at the Museum throughout the holiday season. This short video, shot by Jordan Miller, shows some of the process of the tree being constructed in 2010.
