The artists, designers, and architects in our exhibition, “Glass of the Architects: Vienna, 1900–1937,” a cooperation of the MAK and Le Stanze del Vetro, placed strong emphasis on handcrafted objects. Visitors often ask if it is possible for a machine to do what talented glassmakers can create by hand. Our new flameworking demo, “The Artisan’s Hand,” prepares you to explore exhibits on mechanically-produced glass in the Innovation Center and enriches this year’s “Glass of the Architects: Vienna, 1900–1937” exhibition. See this demo at our Flameworking Demonstration booth daily at 2:20pm.
