What is glass blowing?

Glass blowing is, essentially, the art of making a bubble (also called a parison) out of molten glass using a blowpipe. As a trade that dates back to B.C. times, this skill has certainly seen improvements in terms of methodology and equipment. Your NY glass blowing lesson will cover "gathering," which involves using short puffs to shape a melted blob into a desired shape at the end of the blowpipe. Your expert glass blower will elaborate on further instruction, as you try your own hand at this exquisite art form.
