SHAPING GLASS

Standard

My son took me to watch a glass shaping demonstration.  It was like watching a dance between the artist partnered with the elements using fire for music.

Watch her dance with the baton of molten glass – twirling; dipping; thrusting.

Imagine the body – self awareness necessary to maintain the flow without burning.

Feel the impulse to reach out and touch the radiant glow.

  1. Wow, I love watching demos like this. Thanks for sharing this, Ma’am Dianne!

    Seeing others create their own art has always fascinated me. From nothing to something, how cool is that! 🙂
