Corning Museum of Glass and Celebrity Cruises Bring Hot Glass to Sea

For a hot spot at sea, the Corning Museum of Glass has formed a partnership with Celebrity Cruises' new ship the Celebrity Solstice. Through this collaboration, passengers can learn about glassblowing when they attend the museum's "Hot Glass ShowSM." The show will feature live demonstrations and a narrated performance of glassblowing, designed to engage, educate and inspire cruisers about the art, history and science of glass.

The Hot Glass Show is located on the ship's upper deck within a custom-designed, outdoor glassmaking studio. Three resident gaffers—highly skilled glassblowing artists—will educate and entertain cruisers with live glassmaking shows, lectures and workshops.

Since 2001, the museum has traveled the Hot Glass Show to museums, art fairs and public festivals around the world.
