The Hotel Murano in Tacoma, Washington suggested we visit the Museum of Glass.

We had been invited to a glass blowing session at our resident glass blower in Surprise Valley. That experience was fascinating and as a homeschooling project it was incredible.

The working artist at the Museum of Glass work in pairs….on delicate, transparent compositions.
