Corning, New York, September 21, 2014

An early start, we got to the Corning Museum of Glass visitor center just about when it opened at 9 a.m. Corning is set up well: free buses to the actual museum, the Rockwell Museum of Western Art downtown plus Market Street, in downtown Corning. We got combination tickets for Corning and the Rockwell Museum, good for two days.
Corning offers some “make your own” opportunities. Carolyn wanted to make her own blown glass pumpkin, so she signed up. I’ve tried just about everything offered, so I just thought I’d watch and maybe photograph.
Corning galleries cover two floors at present, with some “industrial-type” exhibits as well as demonstrations of glass blowing, flameworking, glass breaking and optical fibers (the one demo we missed).
In the reception area is a huge piece by, of course, Dale Chihuly.

Sorry — at this point I had an overwhelming number of photos to manipulate, a major computer problem that led to an Adobe Photoshop crash (If you can find a way around Adobe, take it!) and my travels.
I’ll add some more photos as I get them cropped, etc.
