creating your special rondelle starts with molten glass is taken from the furnace with the blowpipe. the amount of the glass gather determines the eventual size in the rondelle. the molten glass is blown out into a small bubble. the circumference of the bubble is the second important factor determining the final size to be produced.
the production of a uniform, high quality rondelle depends on the skill and experience of the "rondel-master". the small, still hot ball of glass will now be attached to a pontil rod and broken from the blowpipe. after reheating it is opened with a pair of shears.
using a special technique the rondel-master then folds the edges, lending strength to the rondelle, making it more workable. spinning the glass, a small, round rondelle is formed. after reaching the desired size, the rondelle is tapped off the pontil rod and slowly cooled in the annealing oven.
