"It's very defined the choreography you just watch the glass move. It's repetitive industrial work but also a craft." At any given moment, there are approximately five glowing molten globules moving in tandem.
In a quaint Helsinki suburb, a six-person group consisting of three young blowers (the youngest one is called a "post boy") first gather the molten glass from the furnace. They take turns sitting down on a beat-up metal chair, shaping the globule with the aid of a steaming wood cup-shaped block.
