For many years, sheet glass was was made by blowing glass tubes, then cracking off the ends and scoring them, slowly reheating and cutting them open, then ironing them flat. This brief video from Bendheim Art Glass demonstrates the key steps of this nearly lost art.
A fantastic way to display your most prized possessions. This glass bell jar features a USB-powered LED lightsource at the bottom, letting you show off your curiosities while keeping them from dust and grubby hands.
We know that you cut panes of glass by scoring them before snapping them apart, but this footage showing how to quickly transform a large pane of glass into several smaller pieces without shattering them is still immensely satisfying.
