Firing up a cast of character


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Dale Chihuly, third from left, and Seaver Leslie, in cap, oversee the making of new Irish cylinders on Saturday at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma. Joey Kirkpatrick, left, and Flora Mace are applying Leslie's drawing to the cylinder using glass strands. Leslie came from Maine for the event. Leslie and Mace were part of the team in 1975 at the Rhode Island School of Design making the original cylinder series consisting of 44 vessels by Chihuly.

There's plenty of smoke and flame as James Mongrain of Team Chihuly works the glass that will become a cylinder during the two-day Dale Chihuly event at the Museum of Glass in their hot shop. Here, he applies a wooden paddle to the bottom of the glass, flattening it.

Getting closer to a cylinder shape, glass leaves the furnace with a drawing on it depicting a James Joyce character from his book "Ulysses."

Molten glass flows from a large gather at the end of a pipe wielded by James Mongrain of Team Chihuly. The "Chihuly Weekend Experience" continues Sunday, with glass blowing hourly between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., except for the noon hour. For more information see: museumofglass.org
