15 Impressive Blown Glass Masterpieces
Glassblowing, also known as glass shaping, is a process where the glass is softened at a very high temperature, around 2000°F - 2400°F, and then attached to a "punty" or a rod, usually steel or iron, rolling it over a flame or firing it using a torch. It is then blown or inflated using a blowpipe. From there, you can start shaping the glass with the design you desire.
