Raymond Rains  Blown Glass

     
 


Raymond is one of the few glass artists that work alone without studio assistants, forcing him to constantly think about new ways to accomplish his objectives with the beguiling and unforgiving medium of glass. Each piece starts with clear molten glass. The clear glass is then combined with colored and/or dichroic glass and formed into various shapes using blowpipes, wooden blocks and paddles. The finished piece is then annealed for several hours at 950 degrees to stabilize the molecular structure before being slowly cooled to room temperature.
