Notes: 
Captions within each film explain techniques.
"The core-forming process" found on tape 1 and 2, is lacking from this version.
Segments vary from 1-5 min. Subtitles within each film explain techniques. The following participated in the filmmaking: Karl Schantz, Steuben Glass (mold), Barovier & Toso (dragonstem goblet), Wheaton Village (mechanical press & bottle making), Corning Glass Works (ribbon machine).
This is a compilation of a series of short films about glass production. There are 3 versions which were perhaps preliminary tapes for the video finally selected for showing in the galleries of the Corning Museum of Glass, which opened in 1980. Each of the preliminary versions has the tape number included in the record.
DVD.
16mm film, which was the basis for these tapes, are kept in the Library's freezer.
Some of these films are included on a 12 inch optical laser disc, "The Corning Museum of Glass, video disc no. 1" (Bib no. 103530) which Sax Communications has indicated is the better quality. The optical laser disc has been digitized.
This video was apparently recorded on a used videocassette. After the glass segments, there is a repeating advertisement for telecollege courses through Wilfrid Laurier University that are totally unrelated to this video.
