I am often asked how I get the twisted swirls in my glass pieces. After I complete the base of the piece I heat areas on the piece and plunge a clear thin rod in and twist, then blow on the area to cool and snap the glass off. Then I reheat and top with a glob of molten clear glass for a bubble or portal effect. Here is a video showing how I finished this handle off.
