As with any great masterpiece, a lot of skill, hard work, and craftsmanship have gone into making Corning, NY "America's Crystal City". We've spent decades exploring and expanding the possible uses of glass art and developing new ways to make it better, stronger, and even more beautiful.

Explore over 35 centuries of glassblowing at the world's largest glass museum, where skilled glassmakers create works of art before your eyes. While you're there, try your own hand at glassmaking: from flame working to fusing to hot glass working, a glassmaking class offers an unforgettable experience.

Of course, the fire arts don't end with glass. Corning is also home to a number of exceptional potters. Browse the many art galleries where you can shop for one-of-a-kind pieces made locally in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes. You'll find everything from beautiful, functional dinnerware pieces and elaborate garden pottery to exciting opportunities for hands-on workshops where you can create your own clay masterpiece.
