Terra holds a BA in Folklore and French and a MA in Public Folklore from Memorial University. She is a lover of all things vintage and an avid Pyrex collector. In this episode, Terra talks about the history of Pyrex, how she became a collector, and the thrill of the hunt for new (and old!) pieces and designs.


The Living Heritage Podcast is about people who are engaged in the heritage and culture sector, from museum professionals and archivists, to tradition bearers and craftspeople - all those who keep history alive at the community level. The show is a partnership between HFNL and CHMR Radio. Past episodes are hosted on Libsyn, and you can subscribe via iTunes, or Stitcher. Theme music is Rythme Gitan by Latché Swing.

Really enjoyed this episode! I collect china and glass and I often joke that pieces find me (not the other way around). I always love the story of how a piece was discoverd and acquired.
