Commemorating the beloved American dinnerware brand’s 50th anniversary, “Dish It” traces Corelle’s trajectory over the years by exploring its distinctive shapes and memorable patterns. “Affordable, casual, lightweight, stackable, and fun. All these elements ensured that Corelle would be a hit with consumers when it was first introduced—and these same attributes make it work just as well today,” says Rob Cassetti of the Corning Museum, which debuted the brand in 1970. “Before Corelle, it was unusual to buy high-quality dinnerware in a box and use it casually as you would a paper plate.” The show spotlights key moments of the manufacturing process, such as melting ingredients, forming a ribbon, fire polishing, and inking patterns.
