Working with cane at CGW

Kevin M Regan and his crew start by pulling rods of solid glass color into very long thin lengths. This ‘cane’ is broken up then heated and rolled-up or added to more hot glass. Using different colors they heat and pull the cane again to twist in intricate designs. Single-colored cane may be mixed with these more complex multi-colored cane to form patterns. Then they are heated and carefully rolled-up to blow a vessel.
