Free blowing is used by many glass blowing artists toady. A ball of molten glass is put on the end of a blow tube. The blower blows short puffs of air into the glass. At the same time the glass is moved away from the source of heat. This allows the blower to shape and mold the glass ball into a number of shapes. They can also pull, pinch, and manipulate the glass into the shape of their choice using special tools. This can produce small objects such as tobacco pipes or something as large as a glass panel that will be used for a piece of furniture.

Mold blowing will blow a piece of glass into a special mold. In most cases the mold is made from a piece of wood or a piece of metal. The shape and the texture of the piece will depend on the shape of the mold. This is used to make items such as flat dishes and glass pieces that have an intricate design.
