Hilda Jesser, a former student of Josef Hoffmann’s at the School of Applied Arts in Vienna, was an employee of the Wiener Werkstätte from 1916 to 1922. During that time, she demonstrated her versatility as an artist by creating designs for a wide variety of media, including glass, ceramics, print, embroidery, leather, metalwork, and wall paintings. Jesser enhanced the form of this vase (designed by Hoffmann) with an energetic blue and white enamel decoration that envelops the surface. See this beautiful vase on display in “Glass of the Architects: Vienna, 1900-1937,” a cooperation of the MAK and LE STANZE DEL VETRO, at the Museum through January 7.

Vase with Blue Flowers, about 1917. Designed and decorated by Hilda Jesser (Austrian, 1894-1985); glass form designed by Josef Hoffmann (Austrian, 1870-1956); manufactured by Wiener Werkstätte and Joh. Oertel & Co. Mold-blown, hotworked, and enameled glass. H. 19.8 cm, Diam. 11.7 cm. The Corning Museum of Glass (2005.3.11).

Object of the Week: Blood Sugar, Tony Cragg, Wuppertal, Germany, 1992. 2011.3.115. T

his week’s Object of the Week was selected by members of the Museum’s Teen Leadership Council. Tony Cragg is a British sculptor who crafted Blood Sugar. The five pieces of sheet glass, with colorful blown and acid-etched glass objects glued onto both sides, can be arranged in different ways. The form reminded the artist of the glucose molecule’s shape, hence the title. Can you see it? Blood Sugar is featured in our GlassApp Scavenger Hunt.
