The art of glassblowing involves heating glass to a very high temperature, where it begins to melt. The glass blower then blows air through a long metal tube while turning the hot and heavy molten glass. This requires a great deal of skill, strength, and patience. Dale Chihuly, a well-known glass sculptor, explored the team approach to glass blowing. Invite students to research Chihuly, his life and artistic career. Provide text resources as well as teacher-approved web sites for students to view.
