Little Videos from the Glass Conference

This is a quick video of the Giles Bettison demo at the Glass Art Society in Portland Oregon at Elements Glass Studio. He is rolling up a flat sheet that is composed and designed of many pieces. Then this sheet is turned into a tube and blown into a shape. The shape he made in the end was really neat, blown like a vase, but squashed kind of flat. In this video you see him picking up the sheet of glass on a blowpipe ... rolling up the sheet - what the technique is named after.
