When we pulled up to Moon Marble Company we had no idea of what to expect. It looked like a gray cinderblock warehouse right in front of railroad tracks. We were surprised to find lots of marbles and toys. Lots and lots of marbles and toys, to be precise.
What interested us in this place were the marble making demonstrations. It was incredible to watch this guy hold the glass with his bare hands as he worked it into a marble shape. I knew glass was an insulator, but after seeing his hands just a few centimeters away from molten glass I now have proof of its abilities. This marble took about 45 minutes to create with some gentle handling and patience. Truly an amazing process.
Andrew snapped a picture of the four of us. I kind of love how Emily and Clara both have one hand in their mouth and one arm on their mom.
