In our lesson Working Deep, we demonstrated how to design thick sections of glass with imagery and color embedded within their layers.
In this lesson, we teach a similar process for a specific application. Here we make a thick slab of glass for a small tabletop. This involves working with a combination of sheet glass and billets. Along the way, we demonstrate how to calculate the correct amount of glass for your tabletop. We show you how to set up dams that will contain your project. Finally, we cover considerations for firing and coldworking your piece.
