The art of glass blowing goes back thousands of years. Hand blown glass urns attain their shape by the artisans actually blowing into long pipes that have molten glass at the other end. As the colored or clear glass expands and an air bubble is created, the artisan must simultaneously spin and shape the molten glass using an an anvil and other tools so it may take shape. The future of glass cremation urns continues to be molded and manipulated until it has been completed. Then, before the glass cools, the bottom of the urn is cut with scissors from the end of the pipe.
