Special Exhibit: A Stained Glass Village
The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present A Stained Glass Village, From the Collection of Annalise and Tom Nelson, featuring numerous individual stained glass houses and churches augmented with hand-made glass trees and animals. This enchanting glass village was amassed by Annalise and Tom Nelson. The term "stained glass" generally refers to the process of combining various shapes of already colored glass, which are held together (traditionally) by strips of lead supported by a rigid frame. The stained-glass houses, made by both American and European artists, may have taken upwards of 20 hours to complete. Many of the glass animals and trees featured in the exhibit were made by a technique called torchwork or flamework. Using an open flame and glass rods, a glass maker would melt glass rods over the flame, then manipulate the rods fo form the various trees and reindeer. We are greatful to Annelise and Tom for the opportunity to share this magical collection throughout the holiday season. The Museum is closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.
