Glass Blower

They use moulds, tongs, palette knives, wooden blocks and other implements to give the glass the required shape. Very large glass items that are too big to be made by mouth blowing are made on a lathe. A glassblower may work from an engineering drawing if producing scientific or electronic items, or may use their imagination and creativity to produce artistic pieces. Nowadays some glass items which need to be of uniform size and quality, such as light bulbs and bottles, are produced by fully-automated processes.
