New objects up at the Freer: this ornamented stoneware bowl with cover, probably from Cambodia, imitates more costly metal vessels used during the Angkorean period (11th-15th century). We love how the cover also imitates architectural forms in objects. ⚱️ #ceramics @freersackler #smithsonian #dadh #gwdadh #cambodia #design #arthistory  #museum #vessel #history #archaeology
Thank you to our students, faculty, and alumni for joining the MA program last night at the historic Flagg building as we celebrated returning "home" to The Corcoran School of Arts & Design at George Washington University.

It is that time during the semester when grad students bury themselves in research and writing. Wouldn't you love to spend that time spent in this beautiful space? #SzabóLibrary #Budapest #gradschool #interior

Before contemporary glass makers began using Uranium glass, these glass objects made popular ornaments in the 19th century for lampshades, drinking wares, and even pharmaceutical jars. Contemporary artists like György Gáspár works with low levels of uranium in his pieces displayed under fluorescent lighting. Not harmful to humans! #glass #decarts #art #modernglass #verre #vetro #üveg #Museumofappliedarts
