This is an interesting photo of the same gaffer with a different gatherer. Do you notice anything odd or dangerous about this image? If you guessed that the gatherer is holding the molten glass over the lap of the gaffer, you’re right. Some Rakow librarians have noted that this photo was probably staged; experienced glassworkers like these always try and minimize the dangers of working with molten glass, and this is not a good example of how to do that!
