CORNING SCULPTURED VISIONS SAUCEPANS & COOK POTS

NOTE: This identification guide is best viewed in landscape orientation on mobile devices.

VISIONS cookware took on a brand new style in 1988, featuring a modern optic look. The "Sculptured "VISIONS" line was made out of the same great, transparent Pyroceram material of classic Visions but presented a sleek new look for contemporary kitchens of the era. Manufactured in both France and the USA. Though available in select overseas regions in late 1988, it didn't reach the United States until 1989 where it was targeted toward higher end department stores and speciality shops.

Also, in late 1989 the entire line was silently revised with thinner walls, and slightly more angular and narrow handles on the saucepans. The revision was easily discernible by the optic/bevel design stopping just short of reaching the rim, unlike the original where it continued all the way to the top. Additionally, the mark on the saucepan handles moved from 1" to approx. 2" away from the rim. Both versions were optionally available with a DuPont Silverstone Non-Stick coating from 1989-1992.
