9 Designed with a Twist February 2 - November 22 2015 Glass Gallery Since the beginning of glass blowing more than 2000 years ago different design tech- niques have been used to add variety to simple vessel shapes. One design technique in- volves a twist of hot glass. This twist can range from a simple turn of the wrist as seen in Fritz Dreisbachs Goblet from 1976 to a complicated manipulation of a bubble inside the stem as seen in the air twist or the spiraling action of colored enamel rods in the stem of a glass as seen in the cotton twist. All of the works on view come from the Museums permanent collection and range in date from the latter half of the 18th century to the late 20th century. This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
