COMPOTE WITH CANDLE HOLDER 9 1/2 inches H 

Some people have a moment -- Amber Cowan is having a year!

In addition to being featured in three museum exhibitions this spring and summer (Shelburne Museum’s Supercool Glass, Brattleboro Museum’s Flora: A Celebration of Flowers in Contemporary Art, & New Britain Museum of American Art Glass Today: 21st Century Innovations), having a solo museum show planned for the fall (Amber Cowan: Second Life Glass at San Francisco’s Museum of Craft and Design) & her work being recently acquired by the Shanghai Museum of Glass – she has just become the recipient of the Corning Museum’s very prestigious Rakow Commission.

As the 29th recipient of this annual award, she joins an august list of artists from the United States, Europe, Australia & Latin America, who have been selected and commissioned to make a new work for the Corning Museum’s collection.


Congratulations, Amber!
