People first made glassware before 2000 B.C. in Mesopotamia (now Iraq and northern Syria) and created small objects by casting the glass in molds or shaping it with simple tools.  In the 3,500 years since, humans have crafted glass into amazing beautiful and functional objects.  Today, glass is used in a variety of ways, from the creation of sculptural works to intricately designed vessels.

Take an interactive journey of glassware through the ages.  Try to decide which objects were made when. Videos give you the curators’ perspectives and show you glassmaking techniques used to make objects in each period.
