The Corning Museum of Glass held their monthly 2300 Degrees event on Thursday evening.
It is a series of free, themed events featuring live glass making demonstrations by guest artists, live music and great regional fare. You can explore upcoming and past 2300° events here.
“We really invite people to come in and experience the museum in a different way and enjoy what this little town has to offer,” Eric Meek, Manager of the hot glass programs, said. “Big city things in a small town. It’s a wonderful place to live.”
A group of glassworkers from across the country gathered to combine furnace and flameworking processes to create an interactive, holiday tree with ornaments. The event is called 2300 degrees because it is typically the highest temperatures they reach.
The event is always free to the public, with food and drinks available for purchase. It runs from 6-8p.m. Attendees can also enjoy 23% off non-sale items in the shops. The next 2300° event is January 17.
