Man, That Glass is HOT!

Cee issued quite a challenge this week Black & White Photo Challenge: Glass

This week the topic is Glass: Anything from a small jar to a windshield. I want to see anything that is made out of glass this week. Have a lot of fun and be creative with this topic. I am eager to see what everyone comes up with regarding this topic. I just want you to have some fun with your photography

I apologize for being a just a little off-topic, but I’m including the color renditions so you can get a pit of perspective and see what the photos are about.

The Glory-Hole
One of the processes when blowing glass is to re-heat the piece being worked on. This small furnace is not quite as hot as the Crucible but hot enough to soften the glass during the blowing.

The glass on the work stand
It’s really hot

And now in living color.

That red is red-hot, the clear glass isn’t much cooler and it’s still flexible.
