John Hoare was the owner of the first cutting shop in Corning. His firm was in business in Corning from 1868-1920, but had its origins in Brooklyn, in a firm which opened in 1853. His firm was never owned by Corning Glass Works, nor did he work as a designer for CGW, but he was cutting glass blanks made at CGW.
