Live from the Glass Lab!

Posted in: Miscellaneous

One of my favorite MIT organizations is the Glass Lab, where students, faculty, and staff can go hang out and create beautiful glassware and decorations. It's always easy to know what to get your mom or significant other for the holidays at MIT.

I'm on their mailing list, and this morning they sent out the following blast:

Dear Glass Lab followers,

One of the great, if not THE great living glass blower, Lino Tagliapietra, is working in the MIT Glass Lab this week.

Since space is so tight and so tightly scheduled, we have, thanks to the labors of Erik and Marty Demaine, installed 3 webcams in the lab.

Feel free to tune in.

Live, from the LinoCam:

Check it out!

That was really interesting. I've always wondered how glass blowing process works.
Thanks Chris
