We saw some glass class students working on one part of their projects. It was very interesting to watch. I thought that if I lived closer it would be a lot of fun to take a class here.

The glass blowing demonstration was great. Apparently it was an unusual day because 3 volunteers were present to help the leader. They took on a big project for our demo.

Across the street from Chrysler is the museum's glass studio, where one can every day but Monday watch artisans blow and shape glass. As with the museum proper, free admission. A must-see.

Watch expert glass blowers make beautiful glass vases and goblets etc with a nice explanation as to how it all works. Right next door to the Chrysler Museum and it's great collection of antique glass and great works of art.
