Mallie Harrell has been blowing glass in a Decatur studio for just a few years, but says that in that time, she's become "completely addicted to it." In this photo, she's using a pair of jacks--which resemble giant tweezers--to cut free a drinking glass she's just created. Harrell says her pair of jacks was the very first tool she bought as a glassblower.
