Renowned Italian glassmaker Lino Tagliapietra spent the week of October 22, 2012, creating his artistic pieces at the MIT Glass Lab, experimenting with folding techniques to enhance color and design effects. Tagliapietra has been working for several years with an MIT team to improve the Virtual Glass software program. At MIT, Martin L. Demaine, visiting researcher and glass instructor, and Erik D. Demaine, professor of computer science, who are father and son, and Peter Houk, Director of the Glass Lab, created Virtual Glass to bring computer-aided design to making glass cane.
