What an awesome little town! Deb and I took a week long glassblowing class at the Corning Studio. It was the coolest (well hottest) thing I have ever done! What a blast! It was a little intimidating at first to walk around with molten glass on the end of you pipe but you get used to it.
We pretty much learned all the basics, how to gather, how to setup, how to blow etc. We made flowers, paperweights and some real ugly tumblers! It looks so easy but it is not. It can get away from you so fast and then you're hosed!
Unfortunately we were so involved I never did take any pics. If you are ever in the area you have to vist the Corning Museum of Glass. It is by far the best Museum I have ever been to. The studio is an extension of the museum and that is where we got to play we hot sand!
Plus it is gorgeous country!
