Glassblowing

An Essential Craft. ‘Despite the declining use of glass, glassblowers remain vital to science and medicine. Although machines can fabricate basic labware such as beakers and Erlenmeyer flasks, scientific glassware requires skilled handwork. Crafting just the basic shape for a custom 72-L reaction vessel, for example, requires a team of eight. Many more skilled hands contribute to the finished piece.’
