Blown Away: Glassblowing Comes to Netflix

Currently on view in the Amphitheater Hot Shop

Blown Away is the first-ever TV competition series featuring the art of glassblowing, and it’s poised to reach millions worldwide via Netflix. The show follows a group of 10 highly skilled glassmakers from North America who fabricate beautiful works of art that are assessed by a panel of expert judges. The Corning Museum of Glass was involved from concept to reality, and even provided the coveted winning prize, the new Blown Away Residency at the Museum.

Located in the Amphitheater Hot Shop, Blown Away: Glassblowing Comes to Netflix tells the story of how the Museum found its way into the global spotlight. Watch a behind-the-scenes documentary with interviews conducted on the set and footage captured of the Museum’s Hot Glass Demo Team taking part in the finale. Learn more about the creative challenges the artists faced each week and see one final product from each competitor.

Blown Away launches on Netflix on July 12.
