Never seen this video before. This is what my wife and I did for 13 years, minus the pipe smoking and flannel shirts Laughing

Soundtrack is spot on, not surprised that the filmmaker won an Oscar for his work....





Watched this with my wife, she said to tell people the fellow blowing the BIG bottle probably had that piece in the oven to cool in less than a minute and a half (the cuts make it look much longer for all the pieces actually). We rarely blew anything that big, but we did some one off vases that approached that.

Although we were studio artisans, we really appreciate the skill level of these factory workers and even the engineering that went behind designing the automated equipment (the timing on that machinery had to be perfect)!

Hope you all enjoy this!


Choosing not to forgive someone the wrong they have done you is like drinking poison and waiting for them to die.
