The glass is turned over and returned to the oven several times to keep the temperature high. This is an extremely delicate phase, the Glassmaster must constantly fight against gravity to prevent any fall of material.

Nebula will then be placed in a high temperature oven to undergo the last tempering process that will make the glass sturdy and resistant.
