Last Saturday night, my church growth group had the pleasure of learning how to blow glass! One of our members, Corey Hubbell, is a glass artist and has his own shop. Thought I’d share some pics with you.
Corey put the initial glass on the stick as he didn’t want us to go near the oven, which is heated to over 2,000 degrees! All glass starts out clear and then you put the “color” on the clear glass ball.
You don’t actually blow the stick when you are working with it. You work in pairs and your partner does the blowing while you are shaping it. My friend Charlene is blowing on my stick while I shape the ball, with some slight assistance from Corey.
My creation below! This was a lot of fun and we were very fortunate to have Corey share this with us and give us the opportunity to learn how to blow glass.
