In July 2011 we went to the Corning Museum of Glass. We had been there before, so I knew what to expect. When you go in you have an opportunity to draw a design, and to explain why you would like it to be made. They call it 'You Design It: We Make It'. Of course, I drew an elephant. I wrote about the picture that I loved elephants and they were cool, and that the elephant in my drawing was happy because I loved it.

The previous year I did a similar drawing but this time they chose my picture to use in one of their shows! I sat there and watched the glass elephant take shape, made especially for me. It was a wonderful moment. Thank you so much to the Corning Museum of Glass. This elephant takes pride of place in my collection.

Here are some pictures of the elephant being made.
