He Starts With A Ball Of Molten Glass. How It Ended Totally Blew My Mind
When you think about glass as a material, everyone would describe it as fragile, transparent and cold. However, the art of glass blowing takes advantage of the fact that when you apply enough heat, the glass loses all of those properties. In fact when it’s red hot, it looks more like taffy than how most people picture when we say glass.
Due to extreme conditions required to make glass pliable, shaping it into a figure is infinitely more difficult than say shaping clay. Yet, somehow, this dude makes it seem as if anyone could do it. This is perfection.
