Glass blowing

Visiting Langham Glass factory for the afternoon.

Watching glass come out of the kiln
shaping the glass with tools.
Seeing the end result
Some fun facts about glass kilns
glass making tools
Kids were excited they got to try their hand at blowing hot glass

Kids didn't get to keep their blown glass but both said it was a bit harder then they imagine it to be.


  1. We did glass blowing once, but Gohan was not allowed to make anything as large as your kids did. He did get to pick out several colors of glass though, so I guess that is something. Glass work is very popular here, since Dale Chihuly is from here.

  2. Oh that is so cool!!! We have seen him but never got to participate....what a great experience!!!

  3. Wow, that is so awesome. What a fun subject to learn about. I have also watched someone doing this. It is amazing how different items are made. I must marvel at these kinds of inventions. How just can believe how someone comes up with the methods.
    Loved this one!
