Forever in Bloom: Florals Depicted in Glass
Special Exhibit: Forever in Bloom: Florals Depicted in Glass November 19 – December 30, 2021 The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present its Winter Exhibition, Forever in Bloom: Florals Depicted in Glass, as part of its 12th Annual Glassblowers’ Christmas celebration. This colorful display will brighten any winter’s day with works from the Victorian era, as well as examples from some of our local glass artists. Although floral motifs were always popular, they gained momentum during the late 19th century. Keeping up with the trend, floral motifs were depicted on a wide range of items produced by the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company (1825-1888). Today, glass artists feature flowers in many forms. For example, David McDermott used a murrini cane to create a floral landscape for a vase inspired by the painting, Field of Flowers, by Egidio Antonaccio. The red poppy , which dominates the vase, was a symbol of conciliation or sleep. The Sandwich Glass Museum is following CDC and State Protocols regarding Covid-19.
