Tie a knot in glass

Can you tie a knot in glass like the neck of a bottle?

Just a thread of glass wrapped around the neck of the glass. Like a lip wrap.

Thanks Ted. I could not begin to imagine how someone would hold the glass to twist a knot. Wrap make sense

I'm pretty sure I've seen neon glass tubing tied in a knot, but it's much easier to do compared to hot glass with a blowpipe or punty attached.

overlapping two tubes is not hard. Tightening them is simply not possible. It' a question of what you think you see.

I used to make knotted paperweights. I'd pull out a fat rod (cased, fritted core) and have an assistant assist with pulling the end through the loop. Cool looking but a pita.

Do a google search under "glass knot sculpture" and you'll find all kinds of interpretations of glass knots from all parts of the world.

There absolutely has to he a way. With a jig or something

I made a "money sack" as a workshop with a guy. Our drawstring sucked but with some practice it's pretty convincing.

I believe that the gallery that carries my work in Cambria sells weights made from rod that are truly knotted. Color and dichroic decoration.
