Doug Smith, University glassblower for nearly 10 years,
carefully holds a piece of fusilica between the chucks of a lathe to
vacuum encapsulate it for energy change studies conducted by the
Department of Ceramics. The glassblowing facility in Steidle Building on the
University Park Campus is part of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.
The shop produces custom-made glass pieces for research purposes,
saving the University about 50 percent on most
of the glasswork it would have to purchase.
