Albany --The Albany Museum of Art showcases a hot new glass-blown exhibit with a live demonstration of how it's done.

Southern Fried Glass of Americus showed off how artists mold and shape glass artwork.

Glass is melted in a crystal furnace that reaches up to 2,000 degrees. Then it's shaped and reheated in another furnace called a glory hole. The last step is the slow cooling of the shaped glass to prevent cracking.

Those who came say it's an interesting technique to watch.

"I just want her to come see how glass is blown. We have some in the house, so now she gets to see how it's done," said Nancy Margeson.

Live demonstrations of the glass blowing will run from ten to four Friday.

The glass-blown art exhibit will be at the museum until January.
