Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

Working with glass is a craft that doesn't often get a lot of shine, despite being so exciting and visual. Glass blowers wrangle fire and are in constant danger of having their work shatter. Blown Away smartly focuses on the skill of glass blowing, focusing on the artists' process from beginning to end and the way they overcome mistakes along the way. The show moves fast but also manages to take the time to explain elements of the process to viewers who may be new to it. The one drawback is that it's sometimes difficult to appreciate the finished pieces on the screen, because they're often meant to be touched, experienced, or seen from all sides.
