Ok, I'll bite! I am a lamp worker, but I have done pickups many times from hot steel plates. When I watch the live feed from the Tacoma MOG I see many artists using a plate heated in an oven and then in the glory hole to pick up both canes and flat sheet glass.
Why is this considered assistant abuse?
