Quantcast
From the Furnace Fire to the Emperor's Court: Ancient Glass in the Holy Land

Yael Gorin-Rosen takes us on a tour through the creation of the ancient glass found in Isreal’s lands, discussing stages of production from large-scale, raw-glass industries to the artisans’ workshops, from the design and use of furnaces to the uses of glass pieces in the court of an Emperor. She describes the development of techniques beginning with ancient Greece and Rome, and explaining the details of glass-making from beginning to end.

Yael Gorin-Rosen, Head, Glass Department, Israel Antiquities Authority; introduced by Shelby White, trustee, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

From the Helen Diller Family Lecture Series Archaeological Discoveries in Israel, Sunday, March 29, 2009.
