Turkey’s glass manufacturer, Sisecam, has begun mass production of domestic beverage products such as tumblers, tea glasses, mugs and bowls in its Pasabahce glassware brand coated with an application that prevents the growth of microorganisms on glass surfaces.  The “V-Block Technology” will neutralise viruses and bacteria and has been confirmed to be effective against coronavirus.  The special formula is applied during production under high temperatures and stays active during the full life cycle of the glassware.

Recommended watching for Glass Ambassadors …. with Netflix subscriptions!

As the Contemporary Glass Society reports, on 22 January the second season of the international glassblowing competition ‘Blown Away’ launched on Netflix.  Ten glassblowers (photo) were selected to take part, including Briton’s Elliot Walker. Each faced the challenges and verdicts of the judges, as they are eliminated from the contest one by one over the course of the episodes. No spoilers here!
