“To Know A Veil” — An Opportunity Realized

To Know A Veil serves as an important milestone in the artists’ careers, showcasing the efforts of more than ten years experimenting with the pour casting technique.

An Opportunity Realized in Support of YOUR collection

The museum is proud to announce the acquisition of this stunning work by John Littleton and Kate Vogel, To Know a Veil. This pour cast work was featured in Between Us and is one of the final pieces in the Clarity Imprisoned series. The acquisition of this piece continues a tradition of supporting artists through the purchase of their work.

The acquisition was made possible by 24 generous donors, from across the U.S., who help the museum achieve our mission of providing glass experiences to spark fun, kindle creativity and illuminate learning for all.
