Glass blowing

I really enjoyed going to Diablo, the glass blowing place but something I learned there really pissed me off. The people that worked there explained how finding a job involving glass blowing is really difficult, so you either teach people how to blow glass or you work building a piece for someone else, and that really made me mad. people would work together for weeks on an amazing piece and when their done they get no credit for any of it. Chihuly is one of these people. he'll paint a random and nondescript piece and send it to a bunch of actual glass blowers to create something from it. he gets all the money and fame, the workers get paid but no recognition. gag!
