the glass rollup process, more!

Toward the end of the rollup process, my iPhone's battery was nearly spent, so I had to switch to photos.

Here Seattle glassblower Eric Anderson and his assistant Myles Freedman prepare to remove the piece from the blowpipe for its final shaping. They do this by attaching the glass piece to a punti.

Myles has gathered clear compatible glass on one end of the punti and then marvered it into shape. Eric and Myles next made sure the punti was attached to the center of the vessel's base, a tricky maneuver if there ever was one.
