Custom Built Apparatus
A glassblower coiled the long tube of glass
used in Galileo’s thermometer. A team of glassblowers fashioned the
light bulb for Thomas Edison, as well as the necessary glass vacuum pumps.
Glassblower assisted Vladimir Zworykin in developing the tube that evolved
into the television. The list goes on. I havent done anything as
great as this yet. Glassblowing is made up of lots of different categories
one of those is the Scientific and Medical Glassblower. This is the seven
year apprenticeship I served.
