Blowing Borosilicate, offhand

This is a demo I did at the Eugene Glass School, after the Flame-Off, 2009. Skutt Kilns brought down their Glass Master kiln - in which I think you can fit pretty close to a 100lb crucible- and melted some of Abe Fleshman's color (Northstar Glass) in it. It was a mix of Millennium Moss and Pomegranate. It was fun to play with boro, working out of a regular air-fed glory hole. Goes to show that there are always new ways to approach our wonderful medium!
