A tube to blow the glass

Posted in 9 - What do people do, Pipes and hoses

One variety of glass making is that of blown. In this mode, operators use a long tube to manufacture the most diverse objects: bottles, glasses and fancy objects, like swans or glass elephants.

In the furnace where the glass is melted, they first introduce the tube through which they blow to remove a portion of glass..

The glass is so hot that it looks like a soft paste. To prevent it from falling to the ground, the blower rotates the tube without stopping. When blowing, a glass ball begins to form at the other end.

The operator uses special tools, like pliers and pincers, to cut and shape the ball.

When you want to make many bottles of the same shape and size, the operator uses a mold. Put the hot glass in the mold and blow into it with the tube.
