Learn the art of glassblowing with this step-by-step demonstration. The guide, Sarah, shows you all the equipment necessary from the color rod and blowpipe to the furnace that heats the glass to its melting point of 2000 degrees. She gives instructions so you can help make your own piece of glass art. Sarah explains how to turn the glass so it doesn’t fall off the pipe, and tells why you might have to reheat the glass. Glass can be shaped with breath or with other instruments. When your your glass globe is finished, it becomes part of a large glass sculpture.
