Stronger than Steel: the Evolution of Glass

Dave Maryo sent me this really informative video on glass. I design in glass when I am not collecting and realize the power and beauty of glass. It is amazing how far glass has come. Thanks Dave….I will also be putting the video on my FMG blog.

Note: Unfortunately you need to watch the 30 second advetisement to see video. Please be patient.
