Corning glass studio helps animal rescue

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - Art comes in many shapes and sizes.

At Hands-On Glass in Corning, visitors of all ages can design and create their own works of art in hot glass. 

Rodi Rovner is a glass artist working full-time out of her hot glass studio, located on the quiet street of Crystal Lane.

Rovner held an open house Sunday.

Young artists sculpted glass Easter eggs and colored real Easter eggs.

There was also a kitten on display from Pawz and Purrz Animal Rescue.

"I was going to bring four but one of them was adopted this morning and we had two adopted yesterday so Patty is the only one who came with us today," said Tina Wright, vice president of Pawz and Purrz.

The open house is an effort to help the nonprofit adopt foster animals.  

Pawz and Purrz is based in Painted Post and house all their animals in their own homes so an event like this helps the organization big time.

"It helps get our animals adopted and it brings in a little bit of money to help us do everything that we need to do medically for our animals," said Wright.
