ARTS AND CRAFTS GLASS AT THE CORNING MUSEUM OF GLASS

Remark: The Arts and crafts movement (1861-1914) was initiated by John Ruskin (1819-1900). This British philosopher and art historian deplored the effect that industry had on society and the arts.  Ruskin called for a return to handmade objects and medieval-style craft guilds.  He also sought social reforms.  British designers, such as William Morris (1834-1896), put Ruskin’s ideals into practice, From England, the Arts and Crafts movement spread to the United States.
