What is glass blowing?

A Brief History of Glass Blowing:

All that is required to make glass is a little sand, a little soda, a little lime and a lot of heat. Legend tells us that Roman seaman, preparing to cook their evening meal on a beach, set their pots on top of stones of natron, a soda used in embalming the dead. As the cooking fire heated both these stones and the sand below, a strange liquid began to flow and that was the origin of manmade glass. More accurate history sets the beginning of glass production nearly twenty-five hundred years earlier than that 1st century account in Mesopotamia where potters fused sand and minerals while firing their clay into glass. Nearly a thousand years later one clever Mesopotamian managed to form a glass tube and blow a bubble at the end, creating the first blowpipe and hence the art of glassblowing. The first metal blowpipe came into widespread use in the 1st or second century before Christ and glass production soared, particularly in the Roman world, where glass became available to the rich and the poor. The decline of the Roman Empire brought a lull in glass making, but then came the rise of the Islamic world, with it's beautifully colored and delicately shaped glass. Throughout its history the production of glass would ebb and flow with the various kingdoms of the world. The Italian Renaissance saw Venice and Murano become centers of glass making, with kings and queens seeking out those cities' gossamer creations. The British Empire's glass tradition came to the New World with Jamestown's first colonists, half a dozen of whom were glassblowers.

Throughout this long history of glassblowing, skilled men endured the tremendous heat to coax beautiful forms from the fire using nothing more than their breath and a few simple tools. They worked hard to polish their skills to uniformity and precision, but even so each creation was as individual as the maker. In the 1820's Bakewell, Page, and Bakewell introduced the first real development in production glassblowing since the blowpipe, a development that would change how glass was used forever. They patented a process of mechanically pressing hot glass. Suddenly the time-consuming handcrafting that all glass had required was no longer necessary and nearly everything around the home began to be made of glass.

Artists who wished to work with glass were forced to the commercial factories that made all these utilitarian objects. In 1962 Harvery Littleton reversed this decline of art glass by discovering that some glass could be melted at a low enough temperature to allow the use of small home-studio furnaces. His discovery brought a rebirth of art glass studios, workshops and schools in the United States, a trend that has only accelerated both nationally and internationally. Once again, men and women stand in front of the glaring heat of furnaces and glory holes with a blowpipe in hand and a vision in their heads, ready to bring form to the molten liquid before them with their breath and a few tools, roughly the same tools the Romans used over two thousand years ago.
