Awesome website, lots of Corning photos, and a whole lot more

I've barely even begun to explore this site, but I got real excited because there's a page that shows some of the exhibit of the Blaschka flowers that I saw when I went to the Corning Museum of Glass.  Looks like there's a ton of other stuff to browse through, even a photographic glossary of glassmaking tools, materials and terms.  Here's the page with the flowers (and fungi and sea critters!).  The link takes you to the middle of the page, just above the Blaschka exhibit.  There's lots more to see on the page, obviously.

Fab Site Kristi. Thanks for the link. I just need to get my hands on some of the glass now.
