Expanding Horizons and a Documentary

Hello readers, long time no talk! Much has happened since I last wrote a blog post.

First off, Roberto, N’Kosi, and Pearl attended a program at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY called Expanding Horizons, and Roberto was given the opportunity to create a piece, pictured below.

In other news, a film crew from Toronto came to make a documentary about PTSD for the Canadian science show “The Nature of Things,” which Project FIRE is a part of. They filmed the guys working in the hot shop, and talked to them about their lives. We’re really excited for the documentary to come out, and we’ll keep you posted on its progress.

In addition to being amazing filmmakers, the crew provided us with some business. Pat is pictured below enjoying his new mug.
