Cameo Art Glass
"Many people are familiar with
the water-clear, sleekly designed leaded crystal forms produced by
Steuben today. While their modern glass is art in itself, the
production of Steuben glass in the Art Nouveau and Deco eras was
remarkably different. Interestingly, Frederic Carder, the man behind
the company, loathed the modernistic clear crystal, as he was an ardent
lover of colored glass.
Steuben production began in Steuben
County, within the city of Corning, New York c.1903, and was under the
control of Carder until 1918 when he sold the company to Corning Glass
Works. He maintained the post of manager until 1932, and in fact lived
until 1963. The English-born Carder was a gifted artist and draftsman,
and out of his sketches came fabulously colorful glass: perfumes,
vases, figurines, tableware and more." READ
