The ruby is folded around the initial bubble with a wooden spatula, then reheated and blown into a mould - which will have to be hinged because of the shape of the article. The rest is cold cuts...

Ivo, please may I ask you to describe also for the blondes like me?
Am I right that Rotter bears no mold lines?
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
