Back then glass was dark, smooth, and AWSOME. people thought glass makers were very talented of how they made glass. 1. Blend sand, and chemicals in a pot 2. melt the mixture 3. dip a pipe into a liquid gas 4. Blow into the pipe to make a bubbly gas 5. shape the glass with special tools. If the maker didn’t like the look of the glass he\she would heat is again. The pike up above is glass from 1999.
