The Corning Museum of Glass Invites You to See the Holiday Ornament Tree

Author: Share:

And….. Don’t miss the Rockefeller Museum Holiday Open House December 2

In 2008, the first annual Holiday Ornament Tree showcased more than 600 ornaments handmade by our Hot Glass Team. The tree was eight feet tall and four feet in diameter at the bottom. The next year, the tree grew to 14 feet tall, with more than 2,000 glass ornaments made by Museum glassmakers.

The Museum’s glittering ornament tree has now become a holiday tradition—the perfect background for an annual holiday photo. The tree is joined by other wonders in glass, including a holiday feast made entirely of glass as well as a life-sized glass snowperson family, the Tree of Life Menorah, Advent Wreath, and Kwanzaa Setting. 

You can’t buy the ornaments on these trees, but you can Make Your Own Glass Ornament, year-round, at The Studio.
