An afternoon of Glass Blowing

My mother's Day gift was incredible.

The furnaces are used to melt the glass at a temperature of 2300 degrees 
And then a cooler oven of only 2100 degrees to shape the glass. 


Elwood starting on his glass flower 

Adding his color ~ orange and white 

Heating it again 

Getting ready to add the white  

Back into the furnace 

Shaping & sculpting it. 

My turn....

Ready for some color

The chards of glass that we dipped the melted glass into. 


Covering it with the glass. 


Doing some sculpting 


A bit more with some tweezers. 

The finish product has to cool for a number of days.  

Pictures will come soon.
