People who assemble the final chandelier from dozens, and sometimes even hundreds, of parts also have to handle hot glass. They wear gloves and exercise extreme caution.
Glassblowers scoop up molten glass of up to 1,400 °C on to their blowpipes. It runs like honey and, indeed, needs to be worked in much the same way as honey. Quickly and precisely, with only the barest movements necessary. They transfer the glowing ball into a mould, spin it with their blowpipe and blow, sometimes more, sometimes less. Then they add another large dollop to their work in progress and again spin and blow, or gently toss it change the shape, and then they tease out the ornamentation with pliers.
