Watch as This Artist Turns a Blob of Molten Glass into a Dragon


Given how fragile it is once cold, choosing to work with glass as an artistic medium is pretty damn brave which makes the work of master gaffer James Mongrain in this video even more impressive. Making it look as easy as playing with plasticine he effortlessly turns a blob of molten glass into a highly detailed dragon sculpture.

Using nothing more than simple hand tools in this video filmed at the Corning Museum of Glass Mongrain forms a mystical dragon and it’s fascinating to watch. Check it out below.
