Evan Kafka was commissioned by Forbes to photograph Corning Inc., a 162-year-old company that has created glass for innovators including Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs.

“Corning introduced the new, tougher formulation this year as Gorilla Glass 3, the latest innovation in a product line that has gone from zero to $1 billion in the five years after the iPhone debuted” according to Forbes.

“It was a busy day, beginning with a really cool shot of process technicians pouring molten glass fresh out of a super hot furnace,” Evan said. “Followed by some still life shots of some molten glass moments after being poured into a mold, their non-glare glass, and Corning’s bendable Willow glass.”
