This is a technique that goes back to when pipes first started getting made. The Wrap’n rake method is a variation of old Italian glassblower techniques. The artist starts with a tube of glass and wraps the glass with strands of color. Once the piece is coated, the artist pulls a piece of clear glass and “rakes” down the lines of color. This creates the blended look of the piece. These are considered a surface work technique because the color is added to the surface.
