Video: What the ancient art of glassblowing actually looks like

Check out an Israeli glassblowing studio with me located only a few hours away from the earliest archaeological evidence of the art.

Glassblowing has been around for millennia. Some of the oldest evidence of glassblowing comes from glass bottles found in Jerusalem that were used to carry liquid around 37 to 4 BCE. The art has changed remarkably little since then; glassblowers still use largely the same tools today as they did centuries ago.

To learn more about this ancient art, I visited a glassblowing studio in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv called a G Studio where artists Maayan Feigin and Boris Shpeizman turn molten glass into art. Naturally, I took a lot of photos.
