What does "Wrap'N Rake" mean?

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.
