Here, Seattle glassblower Eric Anderson closes up one end of the fused
glass cylinder, with the help of his assistant Myles Freedman.
Closing the end now allows the glass to be blown into a shape.
In this next video, Eric is again
marvering the glass on the solid steel surface, working on its shape.
Again, these steps are interlaced with repeated trips back to the glory
hole for reheating.
