Important Terms to Know about Glass Blowers
Many glass blowers are experienced professionals who know how to turn molten glass into works of art and functional item. Knowing a few key terms should help you communicate with the glass blower to help ensure that you get the products you want for your home or business.

Free-Blowing: This is a highly involved, technique process that requires a lot of experience to perform correctly. When free-blowing, the artists puts molten glass on the end of a blow tube. Air is then blow into the opposite end of the tube, causing the molten glass to inflate. The glassmith can then control the glass's shape by moving the blowpipe and using a variety of tools until it reaches the intended design.

Mold-Blowing: Mold-blowing is similar to free-flowing because they both use blowpipes and molten glass. With mold-blowing, though, the artists blows the glass into a pre-made mold that defines the shape of the vase, sculpture, or other type of product being made.

Murrine: Glass rods that include cross-sections of color. They can be used to insert straight lines of color or distorted for more fanciful decorations.

Cane: Very similar to murrine. These rods can contain one or several colors to add complexity to glass art.

Frit: Small pieces of colored glass that glass blowers can use to add decoration to their pieces.

Etched Glass: Glass etchings are typically added after the glass has been blown. The process can use a variety of tools and substances, such as acids or abrasives, to the glass, creating decorative patterns, pictures, or texture.

Working in the business of blown glass product manufacturing can be a lot of fun. This is a field that incorporates many specialties, including artwork, Christmas ornaments, handmade beads, and custom designed jewelry.

Depending on what manufacturer you work for, you may utilize pipe and bowl tools to created glassware and vases from molten glass materials. While some professionals use a traditional pipe or tube for this, there are also machines that assist with glass blowing and manufacturing. It is common for major manufacturers to produce countless stained glass art pieces, decorative beads, and unique lamps in order to sell them to smaller suppliers at wholesale cost.

When you work for a glass blower manufacturing business, it is important to know plenty about anything from Christmas ornaments, to custom artwork, to unique glassware products, to decorative sculptures that are sold in smaller gallery locations. Therefore, you will need some training before you can get started in the glass blowing world. There are courses you can take that pertain to this field. However, a lot of what you need to know may depend on the manufacturer you are employed with, and what kind of equipment they use for glass blowing. While some businesses may focus on making decorative sculptures, others may specialize in handmade jewelry that is marketed at high prices.

As far as income is concerned in this line of work, as with many other professions, a great deal may depend on your experience and training with glass blowing. Furthermore, your location will play a part in rates, demand, and size of your practice.
