It was an incredible honor to attend the closing of the International Year of Glass at the United Nations on December 14, 2022.  This entire year has been a chance to demonstrate how glass enables people to live more sustainably in the world.  Throughout the year, new connections were forged between people in the glass industry, arts, and academic worlds that will carry glass forward into the future! A big thanks to O-I (Scott Cooper) for providing a sponsorship to display Natalie Tyler's sculpture "Wildfire" in front of the UN.
