How an hourglass is made

Director Philip Andelman traveled to Basel, Switzerland, to document the designer’s modern take of the classic hourglass inside the Glaskeller factory. Each hand made hourglass comprises highly durable borosilicate glass and millions of stainless steel nanoballs, and is available in a 10 or 60 minute timer.

I like glassblowing/fashioning. I went to the Corning Glassworks several times when I was a kid and never got tired of the tour, especially the part where the guy would make the little glass animals.
