MIT glass lab

Tonight I drove to Cambridge to meet up with Mike after work, and we went to the MIT Glass Lab holiday sale... you wouldn't think MIT would have classes on glass blowing, but they do and the work produced by their students is pretty incredible. Some of the pieces were so elegant and detailed it was hard to believe they were made by hand, by students.

Excuse the mediocre photos... they were taken under school hallway-esque fluorescent lighting after drinking a very large coffee.

Crazy talented, right? And everything was surprisingly inexpensive for handmade art. If you live around Boston, this sale is going on until 5pm Tuesday evening and worth checking out. Lobby 10 is in "The Infinite Hallway" and only a five minute walk from the Kendall/MIT station on the Red Line. Or a 25 minute drive from East Boston if you happen to have an outdated GPS and get lost in rush-hour traffic like someone did. (Me.)

(I did buy a tiny pink votive candleholder for my studio... maybe I'll post a photo when I finally get back in there again.. someday.)
