What Can Be Made From Glass?

The welcoming displays inside the Corning Museum of Glass, located in Corning, New York. The lifesize glass snowmen are just one example of the many snowmen made from glass. You can even make your own snowman blown from glass. Did you know glass is shaped at 2300 degrees?

Gifts from the Gaffers

These are some examples of hand-blown glass from the Corning Museum of Glass located in Corning, New York. The "Gaffers" are the artisans who blow the glass into the marvelous shapes and colors seen here. Different color metals are added to the soft glass to make the different colors.
