I often see movement just outside my direct line of sight while I am on the torch. This time I grabbed my camera to prove I am not going crazy. The apple tree, just out of the view of the window, and not my glassblowing might have something to do with the attraction the deer have to that area.

Glassblowing circa 1943

Glassblowing circa 1943

This was the year my parents were married. The traditional and modern manufacture of glass, glass research, and its applications.

Britain has attained a leading position in the manufacture of glass. Sand purification is carried out on a considerable scale. There are shots of furnaces, of bubbling molten glass, of glass being ground and polished and of the cutter at work. Scientific instruments and perfectly balanced lenses are made in Britain today.
