Glass Vessels, were made by core-forming, which was probably the earliest method used for manufacture of glass vessels and remained the usual way of making small vessels of various shapes until about the first century BC. A core of sand and dung was modelled into the desired shape, attached to a cane and dipped into molten glass, then rolled on a flat surface to obtain a smooth finish. Once the piece was finished and cooled the core was removed.
