The wonderful art of glassblowing, a glassforming technique that involves inflating the molten glass into a bubble with the aid of a blowpipe, is here demonstrated by Durban-based artist Cornel van der Walt.

Stunning photograph! I remember watching a gentleman blowing glass at the VnA Waterfront once upon a time, truly amazing to see how the glass bends and moulds.
Thanks Chris! I have always wanted to do a glassblowing course, so maybe I should get this guy to teach me a few things
It would be a really interesting experience!
Where can I get Cornel’s details? Would like to get him at one of our events.

Hi Kristi! I think Cornel is travelling at the moment, I have tried to get hold of him but his cellphone number is not working. Sorry I can’t help you! If I hear from him again I will let you know.
