10:30am Daryl Smith -Yale University, Side ring seals (Methods and corrective measures)

After earning a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University, Daryl attended Salem Community College in 1986. He completed his apprenticeship at At-Mar Glass Company in 1989 and went on to work at Del-Val Glass Co., Great Glas, Inc., Kontes Glass Company and Astra-Zeneca Pharmaceuticals. From 2000- 2005 Daryl was the Instructor at Salem Community College. Daryl began at Yale University in 2005. Aside from his primary duties of glassblowing service to the research community, Daryl also offers a glassblowing course for graduate and undergraduate students. By promoting his services to other research facilities, the workload has increased to levels where it was necessary to hire a second glassblower. Therefore, Preston was hired in 2017

11:30am Katie Severance-Salem C.C

Katie Severance earned an associate degree in Scientific Glass Technology from Salem Community College in 2011. While studying at Salem, Katie completed an internship with Mick Souza at Princeton University. There she fabricated target cells for high-powered lasers while working with specialty glasses such as aluminosilicate, GE180, and quartz. In 2010, Katie joined Chemglass Life Sciences, where she learned to fabricate various borosilicate apparatus while operating a glass lathe. During this time, Katie furthered her glass education at night by studying artistic flameworking with renowned artist Paul J. Stankard. Katie has presented at the annual symposium of the American Scientific Glassblower Society, and at the International Flameworking Conference. Katie now works as an independent artist in Philadelphia, combining her skills as a scientific lathe worked with her passion for sculpting realistic floral designs.


12:30pm Lunch and Business Meeting

1:15pm Hot Glass Demo-Corning Museum

You’ll see master glassmakers take glowing gobs of molten glass on the end of a pipe and skillfully shape them into vases, bowls, or sculptures. A narrator talks through the process, and cameras inside the 2300°F furnace ensure you don’t miss a single step along the way. Watching the gaffers (another term for master glassmakers) at Hot Glass Demos will give you a unique appreciation for the skill and artistry behind the objects you’ll encounter in the Museum’s galleries.
