Glassblowing - Week 3

This time we were missing one person, which made up for having an extra person last week. With only 3 people in class we were able to make a lot more stuff. I think I made 3 more paper weights, 3 more glass balls, drinking glass, and a bowl.

This week we got to learn how to transfer the glass blown object from off the blow pipe and onto a smaller pipe in order to open up one end to make a glass/bowl type thing. This process is called punting.

next week we get to make suck bowls I think. I'll tell you more about them next week.

I decided instead of filling up my flickr account with glass blowing pics I'd start a Gallery on my website for them. Below are some of the results of last week's glass. Click on the pic to see the rest of the gallery.
