Lampworker

Lampworkers specialise in a highly skilled glassworking technique. First, glass tubes are heated with a blowtorch to make them malleable. The lampworker then gently blows through a small handheld tube to inflate the glass, before shaping it with tongs and fusing different pieces together.
