The Start

Clear, soda-lime glass, is gathered out of a furnace at 2150 degrees Fahrenheit. Once carefully shaped into a round smooth form, a bubble is introduced to the glass via the breath of the artist.

The Mold

To achieve a consistent shape, the hot glass bubble is dropped into a hand-carved wooden turn mold.

The Finish

Once out of the mold, the glass is meticulously opened, color is applied, and the bottom is marked with a signature stamp.
