cutaway of a pot melt

Thanks so much

Re: Drop bowl

Re: waterjet cutting

He does an excelent job and is very reasonable in price.
To make it cost effective, you might want to do more tthat one sheet at a time.
He can do up to 4 thicknesses.

Re: steel backing for glass

Re: out of the norm and need firing schedule

That is exactly what I would do. Is to clean them up and then fuse them to a sheet of clear.
Also I would never take another class from this "(instructor)"

Re: glass is breaking
