How Are Glass Birds Made?

Our birds are mouth-blown by master glassblowers. To make these unique creations, glassblowers inflate molten glass using a blowpipe. The glassblower then begins to shape and form the bird. This step is repeated many times throughout the process and additional steps are taken when adding multiple colors, patterns, and shapes. The major tools used by a glassblower are the blowpipe (or blow tube), punty (or punty rod, pontil, or mandrel), bench, marver, blocks, jacks, paddles, tweezers, newspaper pads, and a variety of shears.
