Women in Glasshouses: Women at the Lamp

SaveThe Corning Museum of Glass recently began a new six-month blog series “Women in Glasshouses.”  The bi-weekly highlights the many ways that women have contributed to the glass industry in the 100 years since the ratification of the 19th amendment.

Chapter member Beth Hylen, retired Reference Librarian at the Rakow Research Library of the Corning Museum of Glass, wrote a post focused on women using the technique of lampworking, Women at the Lamp.
