In what may prove to be one of the more suggestively written articles ever run in the NYTimes, Kathryn Shattuck covers the searing stage antics of the Corning Museum's Glasslab. As I understand it, the Glasslab pairs the Museum's glassmasters in a real time collaboration, transferring concepts into glass on stage. One of Beacon's resident glassmasters, Dan Spitzer is among the glassmakers on the project that runs through June 3 in the garden of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.

I'll tastefully forego enumerating the moments of erotic innuendo I found in the story, and leave you, dear reader, to your own discovery. Consider it a contest. I'll just say if all references to glass were omitted from the article, it could easily become a review for some super bawdy Chippendale's-like dance routine, which might bode well for the four sweat beaded men on stage in case this glass thing doesn't pan out.
