We continue our journey with the Road Scholars at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning NY.
Glassblowing is a glassforming technique that involves inflating molten glass into a bubble (or parison), with the aid of a blowpipe (or blow tube).
They had an area where you could watch glass blowing in progress. It is definitely a skill. You can see a few of the items they made at the forground of the photo.
I am not sure if Whimsies are blown glass or not but I thought I would add thme here:-)
If you feel artistic you can actually make your own glass pieces at the museum....
Don't know who made these but my grandson would love them.
Happy Travels and Adventures Everyone!
