The Glass Museum aims to bring you in-depth articles about a wide range of glass. The photograph above is from the most recent article, "Charles Schneider: Art Deco Glass Genius" by Tom Karman, edited by Angela Bowey. Charles Schneider began his work in 1918 within the Art Nouveau tradition, but soon mesmerized the world with flamboyant designs that heralded a bold vision of the future - Art Deco. Click here "Charles Schneider: Art Deco Glass Genius" to read this article or click on the picture above. There is a list, lower down this page, of all the articles on glass offered by the Glass Museum.

Amongst the latest additions are Thomas Webb and Sons glass, one of the great Stourbridge glassworks; Chance glass, an industrial giant of a company that made glass in Smethwick, England, from 1824 to 1981; Akro Agate glass , the American marble makers who turned to art glass in the 1930s; Hazel Atlas glass , established in 1902 and one of the great Depression glass producers; and Fire-King glass, dinnerware and kitchenware first made in 1942 by Anchor Hocking.
