Here a fun video from a few years ago when I was a Resident Artist at Harbourfront Centre here in Toronto. I learned how to pull these traditional Venetian ponies back when I worked in Niagara Falls as an apprentice under Master Glassblower; Angelo Rossi. Pulling a pony is seen by some as a bit of a rite-of-passage for a glassblower. I wonder when Turnstyle Glassblowing Studio is up and running, if I'll still be able to do this! Hopefully it's like riding a bike. Enjoy! Hey, it's my birthday today!
