Learn the art of glassblowing with this step-by-step cartoon demonstration. The guide, Sarah, shows you all the equipment necessary to perform the glassblowing feat. You'll get to choose a color and place that into the furnace on the color rod. You'll see how the blowpipe is used when your glass exits the furnace that heats the glass to its melting point of 2000 degrees. Sarah explains how to turn the glass so it doesn't fall off the pipe, and tells why you might have to reheat the glass. Glass can be shaped with breath or with other instruments. When your your glass globe is finished, it becomes part of a large glass sculpture.
