There’s more to the Finger Lakes region of New York than tasty wine and pretty scenery. Last week I spent some time at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY during the TBEX North America travel conference and left really impressed with the museum. The Corning Museum of Glass was founded in 1951 and their collection has over 45,000 glass objects, some dating over 3,500 years. The museum also has daily glass blowing and glass breaking demonstrations. During the conference it was great catching up with old friends and making some new ones! Have you visited a glass museum? .
Les emballeuses des verreries réunies de Sars-Poteries vers 1900
Nous connaissons bien sûr l’atelier de soufflage et ses verriers mais la verrerie comportait plusieurs autres ateliers, taillerie, mécanique, poterie, menuiserie … ainsi que des magasins pour l’expédition. Par ailleurs, les verreries employaient de nombreux manutentionnaires et des emballeuses.
Une remontée au temps des verreries à vivre grâce à l'exposition documentaire "Zoom sur les archives du .doc", trois cycles d’exposition à découvrir jusqu’au 12 octobre 2018.
Tula takes on Tacoma on day Two! After squeaking under the bridge, we arrived in Tacoma and visited the Glass Museum where we watched a couple of artists work in the studio. We crossed the Chihuly designed glass bridge and tooled around town for a bit until we found ourselves crashing a wedding at the Maritime Museum. Headed back to the Tula in a light drizzle for a wonderful dinner cooked by Charlie. BTW the Dock Street Marina is a lovely spot to tuck into for the night. The staff really know their stuff and are happy to share their knowledge of the city. #sailingpnw#tula#tacomawashington#dockstreetmarina#glassmuseum#bridgeofglass#maritimemuseum
