“It Started with Pencil and Paper” Ohio Glass Museum Exhibition

The Ohio Glass Museum will display its 26th show of glass, “It Started with Pencil and Paper,” March 16, 2019, through September 8, 2019. The presentation will highlight the process designers used—on pencil and paper, to envision their glass designs. Three explicit patterns, utilized from around the globe to our neighborhood glass organizations, will be featured. Numerous other planners’ creations will be on view as well. Sketches and blue prints will be displayed alongside finished pieces.

Our docents furnish guests with a visit that tells the historical backdrop of early glass making forms straight up to present day. Our film “Conceived of Fire” gives an account of glass created in Lancaster and Fairfield County.

The Ohio Glass Museum was consolidated in 2002, and significant development started in 2004. The Museum was built up to mirror the significance of the glassmaking business in Fairfield County. Fairfield County has been home to various glass organizations throughout the years. High concentration of supplies like petroleum gas and sandstone in the territory settled the decision for the foundation of the glass making industry. In 2003, the Ohio lawmakers assigned Lancaster as the “Squeezed Glass Capital of Ohio.
