Making Iridized Glass

Learn about ancient iridized glass and a method for creating iridized glass surfaces. This video was featured in the exhibit Reflecting Antiquity at The Corning Museum of Glass, February 15 through May 27, 2008. Note: the method portrayed uses stannous chloride fumes, which can be highly toxic. Do not attempt this without proper protective equipment.
