Chalk Talk

Chalk isn’t just for playgrounds and sidewalks. At Museum of Glass, you’ll find it on our Hot Shop floor!

Walter Lieberman, artist and Museum of Glass Hot Shop emcee, began illustrating glassmaking techniques with chalk for Museum visitors in May of last year. The shape of glass can change in an instant, but Lieberman’s visual diagrams freeze these glassmaking moments in time, allowing audiences to fully absorb the demonstrated techniques.

Check out Lieberman’s illustration of a blown foot, which you typically see on a glass goblet:
