I love watching glassworking. I'm a major fan of Chihuly and other glass artists. I'd love to be able to do it myself, but know I never could.

I'd never be able to get past my brain screaming at me "YOU ARE INCHES AWAY FROM MOLTEN GLASS, YOU FUCKING DOLT! YOU ONCE ACCIDENTALLY BURNED YOURSELF REMOVING A BAGEL FROM A TOASTER. DID YOU TAKE STUPID PILLS OR SOMETHING?"

Chihuly is the Thomas Kinkade of glassblowing.

He doesn't even do any glassblowing himself, he just doodles weird paint spludges on a canvas and has all his poorly-paid interns do the actual work.

hey this is my job. It's great except for summers and being one of the only forms of studio art to attract lots of macho douchebags.

What happened to the good ol' days when macho douchebags would gravitate to blacksmithing?

Does that mean 99% of your income comes from making glass pipes and selling them in Phish parking lots like every other glass major I know?

What did glassblowers used to use before they had newsprint?

Bootymarch - 2013-01-16
Mmm, most pipes, bubblers, chillums etc. are made with a different glassblowing technique, one in which all you need is a torch and some tools, unlike large scale studio glass such as this where you have big motherfucking metal pipes and furnaces full of 2000 degree glass, and huge operating costs: like 80 dollars an hour on propane and electricity. The unefficiency of it all (except for the big names like chihuly, lino, dante marioni) is why the studio glass movement is really really dwindling. It's sad, it's a beautiful art.

As for the newsprint question, I can honestly say I don't know? But papering is never explicitly necessary in any piece, there are always many ways to shape and approach the material (blocks, jacks, marver, pulling with tweezers, molds, a lot of shit).
