Eco-friendly Glass Blowing in Mauritius

While in Mauritius, Spring 2015 voyagers visited the Mauritius Glass Gallery, where they learned about environmentally sustainable glass blowing techniques and got to try their hand at creating blown glass pieces of their own. Mark Rissmann of Iowa State University shares his experiences at the glass gallery and shows off the piece of glass art that he created.

    Thanks Claire. I’ve been really lucky in my career to make connections with lots of people and organizations that are doing amazing work around the world, mostly just by keeping an ear to the ground and being in the right place at the right time. Traveling with Semester at Sea as the shipboard videographer has been an amazing experience and an honor.
