|In order to create the long neck, I have to switch the piece to different pipe called a punty. Steve makes the punty by shaping a small amount of hot glass on the tip of the pipe, then sticks it to the bottom of the piece. Now using a bit of water, I shock the neck of the piece which breaks, transfering the piece to the punty. Now we heat the mouth of the piece to shape it into the long neck.|
