Eric Goldschmidt
Properties of Glass Programs Supervisor

Eric Goldschmidt is the Properties of Glass Programs Supervisor at The Corning Museum of Glass. He has been working with flameworked glass since 1996, when his roommate introduced him to the torch. Since then, he has studied with and assisted many of the world’s most talented glass artists. These experiences have given him a vast array of techniques from which to draw. He combines this wealth of knowledge with his own interests in the subtle energies of the natural world, delicate forms, and intricate color application to create original new works. Previous to his current position, Goldschmidt was the resident flameworker at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass and a flameworker for Arribas Brothers Company at Disney World.
