Question Stash/spice jars?

Does anyone know of a specific video or e-tutorial about making stash/spice jars like this? http://www.kaboodle.com/hi/img/2/0/0...AAAAAS6EYA.jpg
I did a few searches of these forums, but I am afraid I need more practice. And more patience. If these jars have a more widely used to specific name/description, let me know. Searches are limited to the terminology you know, I guess.
Thanks for everyone's input and patience with all my questions, esp. in the past week.
Anyone know where to get the corks that go in the jars? Shot in the dark, I know, but I thought I would ask in case someone had a vendor they like.

You might try looking here:

http://www.talkglass.com/forum/

That's the melting pot, another glass forum, mostly boro. I'm pretty sure you'd be able to find info on the corks there too.

Good luck!

Corks can be had at some 'real' hardware stores or at hobby beer brewing shops. Or on line.

HI HI,
there is 2 video's I know of for making jars and they can be rented from smartflix.
http://smartflix.com/store/video/264...ing-Glass-Jars
not the best and are like home made but they do give you the info you are looking for and then you can go from there and add you own twist.
as for corks Mountain glass has a great selection of corks and free shipping if the order is just corks.
http://www.mountainglass.com/Products/CORKS/

that's how I learned to make then and that's were I get my corks from

Hope this helped !!

The GTT torch video has a nice little jar tutorial. If you are looking at the color technique you will want to search wig wag, reversal, or switchback.

They are fun to do if you dont mind using a lot of color. I would probably just make a few simple ones first with just fume and maybe a bit of color.

you can use the same tech with fume lines... do some reversals, reverse axis, shape how you like it, punty up to the closed end, and open the jar mouth...
i use a cork i've added a handle, and soaked over night to shape the mouth to the final size

Thanks everyone, for your replies. I am also wondering if the contemporary lampworking books by Dunham have jar making info in them?

They are pretty easy to make from points.
Just pull your points, add color inside or outside, melt it in.
Evenly heat your point and blow a bubble.
Carefully heat just the bottom to condense it a little and flatten it on your marver.
Punty up to the bottom or use claw grabbers to hold the bottom of the jar.
Open the top by blowing it out or using diamond shears. Remove blow tube.
then you can heat the top some and use a octagonal graphite reamer to open the top to a size large enough for your cork.

It's early and I was up too late. I hope this makes sense!
