...but beware of the risks of repetitive stress injuries in these jobs. I personally know a few glassblowers who have had to go on disability and/or get physical therapy for their injuries for glassybaby work. Trimming hundreds of cups a shift may screw you up badly. And glassybaby has known this is a problem for years and hasn’t done enough to prevent it. (Like changing their process). In fact they’ve fired workers who have tried to bring it to light and have management address it. Shame on them.
