Scientific Glassblowing Service in Support of Research

About Us

The Department of Chemistry maintains a glassblowing facility to benefit the research community.  Staffed by two glassblowers, Daryl Smith and Preston Smith.  They work closely with scientists, researchers and other skilled craftsman to provide exceptional service. All of your glass needs, whether it’s standard catalog items, modifications of existing glassware, or new designs, can be acquired from the Yale Glass Shop and will be more affordable than using other sources.
