How to Construct a Glass Wonderland Tree

Our third annual glass ornament tree was lit on November 18, during our 2300 event, kicking off the holiday season at the Museum. Seeing this tree in person is guaranteed to inspire holiday cheer, not to mention intense awe. More than 2,000 ornaments, handmade by the Museum’s glassmakers, decorate the 14-foot tree. It takes a crew of half a dozen people from our GlassMarket to construct the tree each year.  The tree is on view through January 2, 2011.

This short video, shot by Jordan Miller on our Guest Services staff (he’s also a local independent videographer), shows some of the process of the tree being constructed this year. Enjoy and happy holidays!
