Hi. My name's Ed Donovan. I'm here at DC Glassworks. You can find us at dcglassworks.com. We are a public access glassblowing facility. We also do metal, metal casting and welding. We are primarily a teaching facility. We want to share with people the magic of glassblowing. It's an amazing substance.

Today I'm going to be talking to you about glassblowing. The best glassblowing museum in my vote is Corning, Corning Glass in New York. Fantastic museum. It's not the only one. There's a fantastic museum also in Tacoma, Washington. A lot of people are familiar with the name of Tacoma or Seattle. It's associated a lot with glassblowing. I think their climate definitely attributes to their great glassblowing. It's a cool, wet climate a lot of the time, so fantastic for glassblowers.

And there's facilities around the world that would be world-class glass museums, but again, Corning, New York, gets my vote as the best. They've got an amazing collection of glass from just about the beginning of time as far as glassblowing is concerned. All the way through to modern techniques for glass and glassblown vessels. So in Corning, New York. I definitely recommend a visit up there. You can see demonstrations by some fantastic glassblowers up there, buy some fantastic glass. Visit the city, which also has amazing glassblowers located in the town because it's just such a well known name in glass.
