"Reading or hearing a description of how glass is made from its raw materials never conveys how dynamic the process really is. Witness dusty white powdered batch being charged in a 2200°F furnace. A few hours later, see how it is transformed into glass. Watch as we make colorless, blue, and green glasses in this ongoing demonstration (come back at 4:30 p.m. to see ow it's going)"--
