Polyvitro

How is this worked? Is it vacuum-formed? Is it shaped using any similar skills found in glassblowing? I'm curious....

No, it's just garbage plastic.

polyethylene and polyurethane. Limited life span and just a cheap prop to look like glass. The name is made up in true style of the man behind the curtain. I want to say they even patented the name itself.

I'm just amazed at all of the people going ga-ga over this work. They just installed his "Pink Crystal Tower" here and it looks like pink trash bags tied to a pole. I try to tell people that plastic is not glass and they give me funny looks. SMH.....

Dale can be a fountain of misinformation, not unlike the Trumpster. People who have blue hair tend to fall into this body of true believers. Sometimes, it is necessary to make your net larger when you're casting from a boat. Remember Dale is the one who brought color rods into the USA. Also don't forget that Dale wanted to land his work over the Grand Canal in Venice. Venice looked at the work and said... "No.'...

Plastic falls slower than glass which is great cuz you have more time to get out of they way. I liken it to lightweight plastic grocery bags caught in a cyclone fence in the wind.

That was the first thing out of my mouth when they installed the bridge of glass at the Glass Museum in Tacoma. Trash bags. Everything else about the bridge is great.
