The glass blowing was an interesting process. To make a single item took at least three people. Each person had a specific job. Molten glass is picked up on the blowpipe from the furnace and handed over to the glass blower. The glass blower creates a bubble and expands it into the size that is required for the object they are creating. It is then handed over to the lampworker who refines the piece to make it into a specific object. On the day that I was there they were making glass pumpkins and vases.
