Watch these glassblowing experts make enormous glass cocoons

It's fascinating to watch the trial and error as artisans led by Anna Miasowsky try to blow enormous cocoon-shaped sculptures large enough to fit a person inside.

Mlasowsky was awarded the Corning Museum of Glass Specialty Glass Residency, so she was up for trying things previously untried.

The way we evaluate a material and use its properties is defined by preconceived opinions and boundaries set by traditions. […] I am not concerned with craft and technique. I don't judge things by how they are made, but how they make use of material. An essential part in my artistic effort is to be suggestive without being determined. I am interested in how I relate to things, and how they relate to me.
