Glass Lab on Governor's Island

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the studio glass movement in the United States, and to celebrate, the Corning Museum of Glass has built a mobile Glass Lab, which is traveling around the country giving free glassblowing demonstrations and working with designers to create unique forms in glass. This month it's been at Governors Island, working with designers from the Cooper-Hewitt exhibit there. Master glassblower Eric Meek and with designer Harry Allen tell us about the program and about how to blow glass.
