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

 

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.
