When heated to temperatures of 2,250 - 2,300 degrees, the glory hole is an awesome site to see as it glows with blazing heat.  There is no room for error in this environment.  As a Master glass blower, Rich will tell you that you must respect the hot glass and the high heat to keep safe.

Glory Hole working

Keeping organized in His new studio, Rich begins to stock his glass stick rack with color.  These color sticks will be used in creating a spectrum of flowing colors in his new work.

Color Sticks

After chipping off color from a color stick, Rich begins to add it to the clear glass and forms a new vessel.  Placing it into the heat keeps it at the right consistency that he wants to create his fluidic style.

Glory hole with working piece

He continues to work with this new vessel by rolling it on a high temperature steel work bench to get the desired effect.
