The Craft of Crystal

The skill of glassblowing has been around for centuries. Located at the NovaScotian Crystal in Halifax, Nova Scotia, it is North America’s only mouth-blown, hand-cut crystal maker.

  11. They blow glass at the Tacoma Museum of Glass (Washington, USA) but it's not a commercial venture like this. Glass is an amazing material!
