Fun Facts

Glass blowing is an ancient art invented in the Middle East about 2000 years ago. The art of making glass spread to the Roman Empire and then eventually came to the New World when Captain John Smith brought glassblowers from Europe to make glass in the Jamestown colony.

Glassmakers are known as "gaffers." They insert the end of a metal tube, known as a blowpipe, into the hot liquid glass, gathering it on the end of a pipe. The gaffer twists and blows into the tube, which creates a glass bubble. The bubble can then be shaped into a ball, bowl, vase, or sculpture.

Glass is melted at 2,000 degrees Faranheit. During the blowing process, it is reheated several times in a glory hole which helps to maintain workability. Once completed, it must cool slowly in a temperature-controlled chamber called an annealer. The cooling process prevents cracks.
