Red + Blue Makes Green

This represents one step in creating a piece of hot glass. The item is a green pear, with a torch heating up the stem prior to stretching it into shape. I'm fascinated by the colors that glassblowing creates in the process of making something solid out of some crushed glass and fire. How a blue flame turns green glass orange when under fire.
