Steve Scherer Ornament
SKU: Schere 46
- A sphere is first blown out of glass tubing, leaving a narrow tube attached to the bottom. The top of the sphere is opened and the figure is inserted. It is fused to the bottom of the sphere with a special torch tip. The opening is then gathered together and blown smooth. A loop for hanging is added to the top. The final step is to use a sharp flame to "cut" off the narrow tube at the bottom of the sphere. The finished ornament will then be heated to 1050° F in an annealing oven and allowed to cool slowly to relieve any stresses in the glass.
