Chapter 2, Corning Museum of Glass
So on Friday we went to the Corning Museum of Glass, truly wonderful and just down the road.
We saw them making glass in different ways, although I don't think there is any factory production in Corning anymore. You see glass blowing demo at the bottom here.
I am really drawn to a lot of the wild and outrageous pieces, really inspiring, you know? The nekkid ladies, the cavorting nymphs, the wee little animals. The wife says that's a good thing: the whimsical.
3 favorites---the newd white angel torso goblet, the very tall yellow and orange pitcher and chalice, the one with the ducks or geese on top.
