Lynn LaBarr: Rakow Research Library Conversation Series

LaBarr trained and worked at A-factory. He described how he was trained (practicing on breaks with help from a mentor), and worked with a German system shop (consisting of 9 workers) with union rules and seniority. He blew Pyrex into molds and substituted on a pressing machine. He moved to Steuben after Main Plant closed and was later chosen to help start the CMoG Hot Glass Show.‎ Filmed August 2015. The Rakow Research Library’s Conversation Series features the stories of people involved in the glass industry and glass arts.
