The Glass Museum of Tacoma -- Tuesday, May 28, 2013 -- Day 18

A walk about brings us to Johnny's Seafood market, where we find lunch.  

Tacoma has a lot to offer the tourist, and today we choose to tour the Museum of Glass.

I am amazed.

The pieces are beautiful, and the explanations of how each were done is unbelievable.  We are fortunate to be there on a slow day and have the docent all to ourselves, so we learn much.

Each is hand blown, then molded or shaped with a tool and fired to make the unique shapes.

Truly amazing.
