How do you get different colors to twist and twirl inside a glass marble?
In this video from The Magic of Making, a series of short films for kids created in partnership with BBC Worldwide, we get a peek at how a gob of molten glass and colored glass canes can be twisted, pulled, and rounded into a glistening sphere.
Follow this with more glass videos, including:
• A horse sculpted from molten glass in under 90 seconds
• The Glass Ribbon Machine
• Glas, Bert Haanstra‘s Oscar-winning documentary short film (1959)
