I had the honor of being on the TV show "Chronicle" and working with the host Sasha as we do in a typical glassblowing workshop experience.
Click here to see the video. My bit starts at about 3:30 .
Here's a video where I show snippets of the glassblowing process
Here's how I make these Fused Murrini pieces
In the hot glass studio, I roll molten glass (like making a sugar cookie) and melt it in. That's clear glass - it only looks red and yellow because it's that hot!
After heating it "just so", I grab the free end with a tool and pull until I get a pencil sized "cane" of glass - watch this video!
After it cools I cut it into 1/4" slices called murrini.
Then "all" that's left is to arrange them one at a time into the desired pattern, put them into a kiln and heat them until they fuse together!
