Primary Description: 
Sculpture, "Yellow Waterlily VI". Colorless lead glass and yellow Kugler "Gold Topaz" glass; blown, engraved. (a) The hemispherical top of the sculpture, in the form of a nonfunctional bowl, is decorated with a large engraved water lily, with the lily’s petals creating a pattern on the walls of the bowl. The hole in the middle of the bowl was the inner wall of a thick-walled bubble of colorless lead glass with a very thin overlay of yellow glass. The ball of glass was then cut in half (the upper half was discarded). The top surface of the bowl form was then ground and polished before the color overlay was engraved. (b) Colorless cylindrical glass base decorated with vertically cut lines and concave dots.

The Studio at 20
Corning Museum of Glass 2016-05-26 through 2017-01-22
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.
