Glassblowers in Hluboka nad Vltavou

As we left Hluboka nad Vlatou, we stopped at a small glassblowers workshop. I've misplaced the brochure so can't give you the name. I'm hoping George or Lloyd made a note of it. While we were there, two apprentices made a freeform serving dish. The photos below show steps in the process. I've edited it to essence. I took more than three dozen shots as they worked. Don't forget to click on the photos to enlarge them for details.

In the last photo, the piece is going into the cooling oven. If it cools too quickly, it will crack.
