This Guy Proves How Badass The Old Fashioned Way Of Glassblowing Is
These crafts will never get old.
These are the sort of knick-knacks we are used to seeing at our grandparents' house. However, the artistry behind them requires a whole lot of knowledge and skill.
This guy proves how incredible the craft is by turning a molten blob of glass into a beautiful horse sculpture using nothing more than a pair of tweezers. The shock factor: it takes him only 90 seconds to do so.
According to the video, the old-fashioned way of glassblowing isn't taught at any school. Craftsmen pass it on generation to generation. One of the most important things in making glass sculptures like this is precision and speed.
The glass remains hot for only about 2 or 3 minutes, then it gets too cold to process. However, the temperature of the finished glass horse in this video reaches up to 700 degrees Celsius. After it's done, the sculpture should cool down for another 1.5-2 hours.
