Lava Glass is a world renowned glass blowing and sculpting facility just outside of Taupo.
Their art is amazing and it presents some really unique opportunities for filming, as well as some challenges. The heat, the changing lighting, the confined space, the gauntlet of BOILING MOLTEN GLASS. Super fun.
Getting in close to the furnace and behind the 'curtain' of these interesting worlds is one of the most exhilarating parts of filming. Learning from people who are at the peak of their profession and seeing the side of things that not many people are privy too.
