** MOLD-BLOWING TECHNIQUE

The technique of mold-blowing is a very old method used to make glass containers and objects. A molten glass parison (bubble) on the end of a blow pipe is blown into a mold to give shape and decoration to the vessel.  It may be further inflated and worked after removal from the mold.

The following examples from the Allaire Collection illustrate glass objects which are mold-blown. Click on the photo to enlarge.
