The invention of glassblowing revolutionized the production of glass vessels in the Greco-Roman world. At the forefront of its development was Ennion, who perfected the technique of mold blowing in the early 1st century AD. Not only was he the greatest exponent of the craft, but he signed his work, thereby creating a brand name and, as it were, a designer label.
