The Art of Making Neon Signs Looks Like Pyromancy

By Casey Chan on at

Meet Matt Thompson. He’s been making neon signs and blowing glass for over 30 years that he’s basically become a wizard of the bright and glowing arts.

Watch him bend tubes and illuminate glass and explain the process of making neon lights in this short documentary. Making neon lights is awesome not just because it looks like flame sorcery but because it’s done in the same manner as it has been for one hundred years.
