History set the beginning of glass production nearly four thousand years ago is Mesopotamia where potters fused sand and minerals while firing their clay. One clever Mesopotamian managed to form a glass tube and blow a bubble at the end, creating the first blowpipe...and hence the art of glass blowing.
Glass after all is a blend of sand and metallic oxides and...extraordinary, blinding heat. The result is a substance that flows and drips like honey. When it's hot, glass is alive.
