Y is For Youghiogheny Glass

Stratoz took a trip to visit a friend in Cleveland, and stopped at the Youghiogheny Glass Factory in Connellsville, PA,  on his way back.  He was greeted by this really cool parking lot of glass scraps!  He bought several sheets to bring home, and we’ve been enjoying the rich variegated colors and the dimension and beauty they bring to Stratoz’ stained glass and my mosaics.

We are proud that Youghiogheny glass is from Pennsylvania!

    It’s absolutely beautiful BUT who would name a town that? Don’t they realize what that does to first graders? Poor babes. Your art is wonderful… Thanks for sharing a great educational Y word.

    Unfortunately, looks like the store and the factory are closed. Drove an hour to get there today during their advertised open hours, and everything is shut down.
