Pearlescent Lusters in Glassblowing (Intermediate)
Glass Blowing:  Pearlescent Lusters:  Tutorial: 
Pearlescent Lusters in Glassblowing My start with the lusters: Being related to Louis Comfort Tiffany, I have carefully studied his interests and tried to compare them to my own at the time I started blowing glass (1987). As I saw it, there are many similarities, but there was one area that I thought that I would not want to touch: metallic lusters. Tiffany was fascinated by the effects of various metal salts sprayed on the surface of the hot glass creating a cloud of toxic fumes whic...


Kiln-formed Cylinders to Blow Out (Intermediate)
Glass Blowing:  Tutorial:  Glass Fusing: 
Mark Hall, Owner of Hallmark Art Glass in Kasota, Minnesota, has devised a new method to pick up kiln-formed glass and bring it to the glory hole. It's a modification of the roll-up technique, making thick-walled solid colored glass cylinders made to pick up warm on a collared blow pipe and blown into vessels. We believe this new approach will withstand scrutiny and provide another avenue for exploration and creativity.   Mark believes, and I agree, that this cylinde...

Glass Blowing:  Informational: 
Flask with Mold Glass blowing into a mold. Listen as curator Jane Shadel Spillman describes Flask with Mold produced by Stebbins and Stebbins. The manufacture and decoration of hand-blown tableware was a slow and costly process. Glassmakers soon sought ways to speed production and to decorate their wares more inexpensively. One way to do this was to blow the glass into a mold, which shaped the glass and decorated the surface in one operation. ...

Using Copper Tubing to Blow Glass (Intermediate)
Glass Blowing:  Informational: 
About 15 years ago, I developed a highly effective technique for successfully working glass on copper tubing. I had been looking for a way to add glass to my bed frame, and wondered if I could somehow put glass on metal. Since the coefficient of expansion of copper is 80% higher than that of glass, it appeared unlikely that it would be possible to “fit” glass and copper tubing. Through beginner’s naïveté, I was able to solve the problem (see Figure 2). I have been using this technique extensivel...
