Punty: A punty is a metal or wooden pole used to shape blown glass. The glass blower puts a blob of molten glass at the end of a hollow blow pipe and creates a bubble. With the aid of various different punties the glass may be shaped into something as simple (geometrically) as a bowl or vase or as complex as animals and flowers.
It was another four seasons before we would let Tula handle a punty iron again.
