What you should remember from what you see here is just one more demonstration of the reasons why I attend this institution.
Earlier this year I was present when our technical assistant rebuilt one of the glass furnaces. Although many of the support staff went on strike this summer, the furnace was just far enough along that we students could help to finish. The experience of such an event is hard to come by — and invaluable! Approaching the end of my 50’s decade in age, I am certainly not be the most technologically savvy person around. We were shown just how doable building our own equipment could be.
All 3 years of glass students joined forces to assist with the installation of this piece. Other programs within Sheridan have given their support when possible. Alumni have given of their time; local suppliers of donated many of the supplies. For that reason, I’ll save the explanations for another time and content myself by submitting pics so that at least the story is told in a timely fashion.
