New Pyrex Collective and Pyrex's 100th Anniversary

Hello Pyrex people! I'm just writing to let you know that we have just opened up PCIV. I wish we could somehow amalgamate all of these blogs. If anyone can pay off someone at Blogger so that we can do that, or if there's just a simpler way of making this happen, please email me (Canadian Erin) at Here is the link for PCIV Pyrex Collective IV . Thanks again to Jeni of In Color Order for her amazing photography and photo montage.

I am letting Pyrex lovers know about a film that has been made about manufacturing in American. Pyrex features in this film. Please check out the YouTube link and the people behind this project are inviting Pyrex people (us) to fire off any questions regarding Pyrex, including new Pyrex.
Here is the press release information: Pyrex joins a national movement in This Built America that is devoted to supporting American companies and American-made products. AOL is proud to support the effort along with sponsor Ford Trucks. Through the year, the editorial and video teams will explore 50 states in 50 weeks to bring 50 stories of the people who are bringing back manufacturing to America. The platform is produced in coordination with Man Made Content.

Please email your questions regarding Pyrex or the film to: me and I will forward the to the powers that be: I will forward questions and repost on all Pyrex Collectives as soon as possible. Happy Pyrexing and keep blogging and reading! Canadian Erin.

  1. Hi Erin,
    As you may have heard, The Corning Museum of Glass exhibit America’s Favorite Dish: Celebrating a Century of Pyrex opens June 6. This week, in association with the exhibit, we're launching Pyrex Potluck, a website featuring over 2,000 Pyrex items from the Museum's collection.

    Features will include digitized advertisements, articles on the history of Pyrex and clips of oral histories conducted by the staff of the Museum’s Rakow Research Library, who have gathered personal perspectives from designers, engineers, and marketing staff who worked with Pyrex products.

    Like any good potluck, we're looking for others to contribute. We want to feature Pyrex related websites where people can find research resources, and we'd love to feature the Pyrex Collective blogs. Is there an email that I can contact you to share more information? Thanks and I look forward to working with you!
