It seems that Bella Hadid has found a new hobby that shows off her artistic side.
On Sunday, the catwalk queen took to her Instagram page and posted a step-by-step video of herself making her own glass piece using classic glassblowing techniques in a workshop.
Considering the extreme temperatures required from start to finish to create glass, Bella chose to keep her clothing to a minimum and wore skimpy white shorts with a cropped purple sports top.

Glass is made by heating sand to an extremely high temperature, turning it into a malleable liquid. When it solidifies, a piece of glass emerges in the shape the creator molded it into.
In the video, viewers find Bella in the process of working to shape the molten, red-hot material.
She can be seen sitting down and banging her scorching hot material on a long, sharp, wrench-like tool that was attached to a hollow blowrod about a meter long.
Concerned about safety, she wore goggles to protect her eyes.

Working on it: An instructor is heard offering a few tips while turning the object around until a small hole begins to form
Dose of Heat: At the end of the first clip, Bella gets up and gives the hot material another dose of intense heat by placing it in a fiery furnace
You can hear an instructor giving her a few tips spins this object round and round to the point where a small hole starts to form.

For the next phase, the instructor assists Bella and slowly rotates the blowstick as she sands down the still-molten red piece with two black blocks.
The heat is so intense that you can see steam floating in the air as they continue the grinding process.

“Oh yes, that’s that one,” a male voice is heard saying off-camera as they continue to rotate the object as they poke at it with that sharp tool.
As the process continues, Bella sits down and rotates the blowstick back and forth while resting in a circular platter that she holds with her right hand.
“It’s a perfect shape,” says the instructor encouragingly.
“Here it is, ladies and gentlemen,” the man continues, just as Bella gets up to blow into the pole to expand the molten, hot material to form a glass or vase of sorts.

Ancient Technique: In glassblowing, a mass of heat-softened glass is formed by blowing air through a tube, or in this case a rod
The final clip features a close-up of Bella spinning the glass while adding some intricate touches to the piece with a prong-like tool.

It is said to have been invented by Syrian craftsmen in the area of Sidon, Aleppo, Hama and Palmyra in the 1st century BC Britannica.
The technology has remained essentially the same to this day.
