Raise Your Glass (Goblets): Recent Acquisitions from Alan and Barbara Boroff and the Kohler Foundation, Inc.

August 3, 2018 – July 21, 2019

In a contemporary context, glass goblets may seem like a rarified object—one associated with historical ceremonies or formal banquets. But in the fine craft field, glass goblets are akin to ceramic teapots in that they are functional forms that makers explore either as exercises in technique and style or as singular forms that reflect an idea or serve a purpose.

This Windows on Fifth Gallery exhibition debuts over 100 glass goblets donated to RAM by Alan and Barbara Boroff and the Kohler Foundation, Inc. The show offers examples by a wide range of contemporary glass artists—those that focus on creating glass vessels specifically and those who typically use glass in their work in other ways but have tried their hand at the goblet form. Likewise, a variety of styles, techniques, and sizes are represented. Artists whose works are featured include: Lucio Bubacco, Fritz Dreisbach, Matt Eskuche, Shane Fero, Katherine Gray, Richard Jolley, James Minson, and Charles Savoie.
