新竹玻璃工藝博物館之玻璃小子的一生

日期:八月某日(待查)

本來只有參觀小朋友才有體驗的權利歐!!不過跟著攝影大師的腳步賺到親自體驗吹玻璃的經驗,另外賺到大師攝影加簽名照兩張!!ㄏㄏ,應該羨煞不少人吧!!:-D

吹著已經加熱到八九百度的玻璃是什麼感覺呢??就像含著熱熱的吸管來吹氣球一樣,必須掌握時間跟力道,不然形狀一點都不美,玻璃溫度降低就吹不出形狀了,當然太大力玻璃球也是會吹破的歐!!這位吹玻璃師傅還將貓吹的玻璃球半成品送給貓,姑且稱之為玻璃小子,回家貓只要稍微加個工就可以當作小花瓶了,但是………………………………,貓想著要如何保護脆弱的玻璃小子,一直思考著該如何加以改裝,另一方面也太懶惰了,回家後將玻璃小子隨意放在沙發的角落,為了避免他受傷的機會,小心的保護著,連碰都沒碰一下,連照片都還沒拍,結果,就在昨天夜裡,Watson輕輕拿起它,就像跟貓抗議無視它的存在似的,毫無欲警的心碎了,它就碎成好幾片在Watson的手上跟椅子上!!貓跟Watson馬上出現囧形,Watson嚇得馬上跟貓說沒欺負它耶!怎麼會發生這種事?還好Watson沒有受傷,只是這下子這個玻璃小子可真的達成目的了,唉!!從出生到結束,都讓貓感受到不可思議,就讓貓用blog來記錄一下這件事,另外加上先前英文圖片練習的一小段文章以茲記錄,願玻璃小子安息吧!!在貓的心目中永遠以一段特殊的經驗留存!!阿門!!

A Special Experience

 

 

Last month, I went to a glass museum and had the special experience of blowing glass and someone took a picture for me. This picture shows the situation at that time. In this picture, I am standing on the left side, and the glassblower expert is standing on the right side. I am wearing a headscarf with the striated pattern and a pair of glasses with thin frames. The expert has a white crew-cut and is wearing a pair of glasses which has thick black plastic frames. I am a litter taller than the expert. There is a long glass tube between us. The left side of the tube is in my mouth, and I am using my right hand to hold the glass tube. The expert is using both of his hands to support the two ends of this long glass tube. His right hand is near me, and his left hand is near himself. During this time, he also gave me the instructions. I used my strength to blow into the glass tube, and the middle of the glass tube, which was like a balloon, grew bigger and bigger. The picture was taken by a famous monochrome Taiwanese photographer Wong, Ting Hwa, and on the bottom right corner, Mr. Wong signed his signature for me.
