  1. Is this the final shape ? Is air being blown to make it swell from inside ? Will it become transparent when cooled or it is an orange glass ? I have never seen glass blowing,it looks awesome,like orange jelly 😛

    • This is just the basic blob of glass. The craftsman can pull it into any shape at all. It’s orange because it’s very hot – the finished article won’t necessarily look anything like this.
