Small Bits Do Add Up

It is a slow day out in the virtual world today.  Or maybe it’s just me that’s s-l-o-w :)

Over time I collect little bits of information that aren’t quite enough for a blog post, but I still think are worth sharing. Today is a good day to clear out my list of things that I would like to share.

Sasha Strekopytova & Helen Stolyarenko

First, I want to let you know that I’ve heard from Helen and she is so happy that you all liked the blog posts that she and Sasha wrote.  The blog  even received a comment from Sasha’s father!  You will find the blog post and the comment here A Summer in the USA – Part 3.

Helen had so much fun, she asked if she could write occasional posts for Looking At Glass about glass in Russia.  What a fabulous idea!  I can’t wait to share her updates with you.  Are you in a country other than the USA and would like to write guest blog posts about glass in your country?  Send me an email, I would love to share updates about glass on an international basis here at Looking At Glass blog.

Paul Housberg's Houston Installation on Facebook

In the current news department, Paul Housberg is wowing me with updates about his  project installation in Houston, TX.  You can follow the project progress on Paul’s Facebook page.  BTW, if you don’t follow on Paul on Facebook, you need to.

iPhone and iPad Apps

We still have Glasschat every Thursday at 4pm ET.  This week we are talking about iPhone and iPad apps.  I’ve found lots of apps to share with everyone on Thursday, but here is one that I thought might be worth sharing on the blog.  If you are a Stained Glass enthusiast, you might want to check out The Art of Stained Glass.  This app is $2.99 to download.  I should mention that I am not endorsing or profiting from this app.  I’ve got a whole list of apps that I have found and I’m sure more will be mentioned during our chat on Thursday.  I’ll try to post a list of all of the apps next week.  If you do not tweet or if you cannot participate in the chat, we post a transcript after the chat, so you can read the twitter discussion.  And if you know of or use an app that you think should be mentioned during the chat, leave a comment or email me!

Cool Video

Emily Vassos at Nikolas Weinstein Studio shared this cool retro 1958 Dutch glass blowing film with me.  If you’re into glass blowing andthe 1950’s this film is awesome.  Heck, the soundtrack alone is worth a watch!

“Glass (Dutch: Glas) is a 1958 Dutch short documentary film by director and producer Bert Haanstra. The film won the Academy Award for Documentary Short Subject in 1959. The entire film is about the glass bottle industry” – Wikipedia

LinkedIn and Google+

I am on LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest (search for Patricia Linthicum).  If you are not a part of my network, circle, or boards, let’s connect!

Finally, a few weeks ago I added a rating system to this blog.  Each day at the bottom of a post you have the opportunity to rate the post.  Why did I add it?  I’m curious about the posts that you may like more than others.  Honestly, I don’t think this will change what I blog about but I think it will be interesting to see how you all feel about the subject and how it is presented.  If you like a post, take a second to rate it.  Thanks!

New Corning Museum of Glass Mobile App Provides In-Depth Look at Renowned Collection

Corning, NY (PRWEB) August 18, 2011

The Corning Museum of Glass, which features more than 45,000 objects from 35 centuries of glass art and history, has released a new mobile app with information about its collection and related glassmaking techniques.

The app, available in iTunes and on the Android Market for $2.99, includes more than 100 objects in the Museum’s collection, with detailed information provided in text, images, audio and video. It also includes videos of glassmaking processes and properties to give visitors the opportunity to see how different types of glass pieces are made.

A child-friendly section includes fun facts about select objects and information tailored to kids’ learning needs.

Visitors to the Museum can also rent iPod touch® devices with the app for $3 per person.

The Corning Museum of Glass is the foremost authority on the art, history, science, and design of glass. It is home to the world’s most important collection of glass, including the finest examples of glassmaking spanning 3,500 years. Live glassblowing demonstrations (offered at the Museum, on the road, and at sea on Celebrity Cruises) bring the material to life. Daily Make Your Own Glass experiences at the Museum enable visitors to create work in a state-of-the-art glassmaking studio. The campus in Corning includes a year-round glassmaking school, The Studio, and the Rakow Research Library, the world’s preeminent collection of materials on the art and history of glass. Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country of New York State, the Museum is open daily, year-round. Kids and teens, 19 and under, receive free admission.

It’s Friday!

It has been an unusual week.  On Tuesday we experienced the rare east coast earthquake.  This pretty much sums up our experience here in NC.
