In the early days of glass blowing, leaving mulano's glass-making Island with knowledge of how to blow glass was a crime that could be sentenced to death.In 1612, a book by Antonio lining revealed the secrets, a craft that quickly spread to Europe and eventually to the new colonies of the United States.The tools that accompany immigration are the precious property of glass hair dryers, usually passed down generation after generation.When the glass blowers came to the colonial United States, they brought these tools.Glass blowing tools have barely changed for centuries.The tools used by early Roman glass blowers were also used by Murano's glass masters.The tools used in Jamestown's early glass hair dryer in 1607 are the same as those used in today's glass hair dryer.The tools are hand-forged by blacksmiths.A professional blacksmith can make finer tools and make it easier to use hot molten glass.The most commonly used tools on benches for colonial glass manufacturers are pontil or punty and blow pipes.Glass manufacturers create bubbles in a large amount of molten glass by blowing pipes.He made bubbles into bottles, glasses, bowls, fish floats and window glass.The glass-blowing person collects the glass ball with a small mix.He put the glass ball on the bubble to form a handle, a high-foot Cup and a decoration.He also removed the finished glassware safely from the blow pipe with a small mix.Bench tools for colonial glass blowers include jacks.The jack is shaped like a giant tweezers used to pull the glass out and form a vase opening and bottleneck.Before use, carved wooden molds were called blocks and soaked in water.Their long handle enables the soot blower to push the glass into the mold where steaming wood can smooth the bubbles into the perfect sphere.Scissors can cut the soft glass off the edge of the high-foot Cup and the mouth of the vase.The flat paddle produces a straight flat side and bottom on the bottle and kettle.Cast iron molds are printed on glass bottles or bowls.Some of these molds are simple cones that the glass can be forced to flip or enter to make ribs or patterns.The more complex mold consists of two parts.Small glass bubbles are inserted into the mold before blowing.Then take out the mold and reveal a part of the shape and decoration.
