Glassblowing is a form of art for creating in glass. The art of glassblowing has existed for thousands of years and through it many diverse things are made such as home design decore, jewelry and of course fine art.
The glassblowing art is so much fun and anybody can become a glass blower even they don’t have any experiance.
The glass when it is cooled has a harden structure, however when you start to heat it, it starts to get a liquid and flexible form and then can not start sculpting, connecting and creating almost anything you want.
There are many types of glass that can be worked with and shaped with. The glass that is common in my studio where I create and teach with, is “borosilicate” – most of you know it as Pyrex. The uniqueness of this glass is that it remains stable at high heat.
What tools do we use in glass blowing:
The main tool is of course the tourch – it creates a flame at a temperature of 1600 degrees and into it we will put the glass. In addition we will work with goggles to protect the eyes,Scissors that will cut the glass, tweezers to tighten and of course our breath.
