Fragile. The Hall Glassworks 1534–1635

Hall in Tirol, every Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 14.01.2022 - 23.10.2022

As 2022 is the International Year of Glass, the Hall Municpial Museum celebrates the roughly centennial history of the Hall Glassworks with an extensive exhibition from January through October.

 

On display from January 14 through October 23, 2022, this exhibition traces the history of the Hall Glassworks, which achieved prominence in the 16th century for its primacy of craftsmanship and artistry. It appears to have produced the first clear glass in the Venetian style made north of the Alps. Glassmaking was an expensive venture. Moreover, the Hall Glassworks used wood as their fuel for manufacturing glass, a highly coveted material during these days which were the heydays of mining in Tirol. Apart from producing fine mouth-blown glassware and delicate art objects, the Hall Glassworks was mainly manufacturing float glas for windows. The exhibition displays artefacts from private as well as from museum collections, along with historical findings and two elaborate replicas of original glasses found onsite of the Hall Glassworks.

The exhibiton is a close collaboration with the team of the Hall Town Archeology Association, which played a crucial role in the archeological excavations and research. A virtual 3D reconstruction of the glassworks structure will be on display, too.
