At first blush, confections and glass seem unrelated.

As we observed a singular object being crafted from start to finish, we, too, realized that the process recalled Unwrapped with Marc Summers more than any other cultural touchpoint. That’s not to say that it isn’t highly tactical, intense, and skill-based work. It is. But being the seasoned glassworkers they are, KEEP managed to make it look as easy as, well, pie.
