On the way back from NYC to Toronto, we stopped overnight in Corning. My mother had mentioned that they had a wonderful glass museum there so we thought the following day we'd take a quick look around and then get back on the road.
Well, a quick look around turned into 5 hours! It was full of incredible glass creations, dating back 35 centuries. They also had glass vase making and glass breaking demonstrations which the boys really enjoyed.
My favourite section was the contemporary glass exhibit. I was able to take some photos, which you'll see below. The very last two photos are not as clear as I would have liked but I included them anyway as it was such a neat piece of art - a chess board and all the pieces all made out of glass.
To those amoung us, who are able to make these wonderful creations, I am in awe!
