2300° at The Corning Museum of Glass

Get ready to party at May’s 2300°! Not only will we be celebrating The Studio’s 20th birthday with an amazing live demo by William Gudenrath but we’ll also be kicking off the an incredible weekend of GlassFest activities.

Hot Glass Transfer from The Studio to The Amphitheater Hot Shop
It all starts at 5:15 pm when the party moves from The Studio to The Amphitheater Hot Shop for the ever-popular GlassFest glass ribbon cutting ceremony. The Studio’s own Harry Seaman will bring a BIG gather of glass from The Studio to the outdoor pavillion where he will pass it to Eric Meek who will bring it into the Amphitheater Hot Shop. The glass ribbon will be cut and the festivities will officially be underway for the start of 2300° and GlassFest.

Live Glassmaking featuring William Gudenrath
The Studio’s resident advisor and all around glass master, William Gudenrath will be demonstrating during 2300°. Known for his mastery of traditional Venetian styles, he’s also a unique glassmaker who, unlike most, works without a team. Watch as William Gudenrath takes over the Amphitheater Hot Shop for an amazing demonstration that can truly be described as a “one-man show”!

Amazing Live Music featuring Break of Reality
They helped us kick off the opening of the Contemporary Art + Design Wing last year, so we thought we’d welcome back Break of Reality to keep the party going at 2300°. This crazy cool cello rock band is not to be missed. This classical quartet breaks all boundaries with their musical blend of traditional classical music with their one-of-a-kind alt/indie-cello stylings.
