This done, it is brought back to a specific furnace to be heated until it reaches the ideal temperature to be blown by the artisan. After this conformation step, the piece will undergo several operations culminating in the choice of the cutting to be applied. At the stage of cutting, the artisan works the piece using a grinding wheel that will devastate the layer of colored crystal, giving the appearance of transparent crystal as design of the cutting.
