Glass blowing is a lot of fun !

I love the heat, the combination of the physical and mental, and the team work. Did you know a glassblower almost never works alone instead he works with a team. Sometimes with just on assistant, but quite often with many more depending on the project.

I was lucky enough to travel to Australia in late November 2018 for a project to create 350 drinking glasses for a boutique hotel just north of Sydney. This is a short video documenting the process. It was a fantastic opportunity to work at the state of the art Canberra Glass works and with an awesome team of talented artists - thank you !

See if you can work out how many people are on the team !
