How did you know you wanted to be a glassmaker? What’s the hardest design you’ve ever made? What type of glass do you prefer working with? Glassmakers and flameworkers from the Hot Glass Demo team and The Studio will be standing by to answer any and all of your glassiest questions on #AskAMaker day on Twitter! From different techniques, to caring for equipment, to what they love about their jobs, you can ask our glassmakers anything during this live Twitter Q&A. Tweet your questions to @corningmuseum using the hashtag #AskAMaker. We’ll be answering your questions on March 6.
Tomorrow’s Hot Glass You Design It; We Make It! comes to us from Brooke, age 9. Brooke says, “I wanted to make a cup that looked like an elephant because elephants are my favorite animal! And elephants inspire me to be strong, kind, and brave. And the colors blue and purple are my lucky colors, so I picked those to go with the elephant. I hope you like it!” Congratulations to Brooke for having her design chosen! Watch gaffer Catherine Ayers and the Hot Glass team make Brooke’s elephant cup tomorrow morning 9:30-11:30am at the Museum or live at cmog.org/live.
So my friend @katieharrisomg made a Sims house with all the paladins + Allura and Coran, and she made Shiro and Allura get married and have kids and their kids are beautiful ofc. We’re really invested in their family now, so we’re making a bunch of headcanons for them. Here are some of them:
- They’re three years apart, with Emi being the oldest.
- Alfie’s full name is Alfor.
- Allura is sad that neither of them have pointy ears.
- Alfie’s hair is naturally pink, but he can shapeshift it’s color and he does so frequently. Never natural colors.
- Both of them can shapeshift, but not as well as Allura. Alfie is good at changing colors but he can’t change shape or size, and Emi can’t really change colors but she can change size.
- Despite both of his parents being tall, Alfie is perpetually short.
- They refer to all the paladins and Coran as aunts and uncles.
- Emi wants to work in law, as a police officer or special agent, and Alfie wants to be a pre-k teacher.
