How to Make a Handblown Glass Mushroom Pendant

Posted by on Feb 28, 2012

Customers often ask me how I get the mushroom inside of the glass drop pendant. It’s a little tricky to explain without visual cues so I made a video showing the entire process. I basically heat up a “gather” of molten glass on the end of a 12mm borolisicate glass rod. Then I take a thinner “point” of glass that I pulled earlier and push it into the molten gather of glass. When the tip of the point of glass hits the cooler glass towards the top of the gather, it mushrooms back down into the hotter glass.
