It can crack, break, twist, bend, and shatter. Hotwork brings out many different faces of glass. Depending on how you control the moment of change, the outcomes can be entirely different. This is very thrilling and so stressful that it seems like it is shortening my life span. I put everything I have into blowing glass, and have just started to feel that glass will be a formidable adversary for the rest of my life.
