Float Glass Products

At last! My glass order is finally here. All these goodies are co-efficient with float glass (coe 82-84) and I am already experimenting with them.

Shown here: two sheets of "precious metal" glass in gold and silver, five jars of fine glass frit, three jars of glass bubble powder and a bucket of glass "tangles". The tangles looks fabulous and I hope to make some dishes based on sweet shop candy with them. They are like hollow twisted glass stringers, but a bit thicker than the normal stringer.
Not shown - two pens of "liquid" stringer in black and white and two nibs.

Below are some examples of float glass fusing products including a slumped dish made with different colored frits. I could have bought float glass millefiori too but the colors are rather disappointing. I think I'll wait until the technology for float glass can create colors that equal Bullseye or murano.

Anyway, I will be posting all my experiments (good and bad) here on my blog so please stay tuned!


  1. Very interesting! Can't wait to see what you make!

  2. Good luck and have fun with your experiment!

  3. thought your blog was interesting and something my customers should know about. Nice work!

  4. oooh, I love receiving new supplies in the mail - my favorite type of package (ok, well maybe my 2nd favorite thing after boxes from! Have fun making!!
