A couple of weeks ago, AH and I were lucky enough to make a visit to a local glass blowing studio and watch a demonstration of this ancient art. We learned a little physics along the way, too!

|We watched while our host made a glass horse in 2 minutes. After it had cooled, the kids got to handle it.|
|We watched a wine glass being made.|

|We also watched them make a vase.|
|Here they are adding polka dots to the vase.|
