Then she rolls the glass on this table to help shape it and cool it.
Then into the oven to heat it up again. Then to the bench to start shaping and pulling. The process was to pull some and then reheat, then pull some more then reheat. The glass was emanating heat so your hands got really hot while pulling the glass into shape.

Isn't it spectacular?

If you get the chance to go to Tulsa Glass Blowing Studio, you will love it! I might not go in the summer but it was a great winter activity! Emma Jane is hooked and wants to take a class.
