Video of the week: Pantano links the art and science of glass

Published on January 20th, 2010 | By: pwray@ceramics.org


ACerS member Carlo Pantano, director of the Materials Research Institute, and Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Penn State University, is a nationally known expert on the science and engineering of glass. But Pantano also knows about the artistic side of the material, too, and uses this as a way to link art and science. In this brief video, he demonstrates his glass-blowing chops, and discusses how he combines the two in his personal and teaching life.

Pantano will be giving a full lecture in March at Penn State about the art and science of glass. Actually, it sounds like the format will be more of a “conversation” in front of a large crowd. I’ll post the details when I get them.

    We’re in FL for the winter otherwise I’d like to be there for your lecture. Have been meaning to get in touch with you about getting together for lunch some time after we get back, perhaps when I come down with “young” Jim to check out progress on the Huck Center. He’s given me a link to the Huck site but its not quite the same as seeing its progress in person.

    Carlo – Too bad we won’t be in State College when you are talking about the science and art of glass. It would be fun to hear more about how you are having fun in the midst of the chaos of your job. We hope to see you and Jackie again in the near future. Karl
