Making Art From Glass

After making a “gather” of molten glass for a sculpture, Jonathan Swanz removes a small piece that accidentally broke off the inside wall of one of his furnaces. These furnaces heat a mix of silica sand, soda ash and limestone to a temperature of 2150 degrees Fahrenheit, creating the molten glass. He then gathers the liquid glass on a blow pipe and methodically works it into art. Check out the article: hawaiibusiness.com/parting-shot-glass-artist/
