they used to do that in the 70's. I think they used torches to heat them and sometimes they stretched the necks out.

I found a site on how to do it with a kiln.

Here is a link that might be useful: Guide to fusing, slumping, and related kiln-forming techniques

My friend is making them now ... they're getting popular again . You do need a kiln - it takes about 45 minutes to flatten them & VERY high heat.
