Three members of the Schmitz family make art glass at Pyromania Glass Studio and Gallery in Newport. The glass blowing technique they use is 2000 years old, but the iridescent glass that is their specialty uses a new and expensive type of coloring. They make plates, paper weights, and an artistic version of the traditional Japanese glass fishing floats.

First Broadcast: 2000
