hot air

from my adventures in glassblowing.
glass blowing is seriously fun. it’s a great upper body work out and really tests you on your ability to work quickly and creatively. it’s also a very “team” centric process.
these are drop vases and a paperweight. color is added before the bubble is blown. once you successfully “pop” your bubble and let it rise, you quickly “drop” the piece to a downward slant while blowing into the glass to create the “teardrop” esque bottom.
