Checkout is not working

Checkout has just broken - you can view your order and get a shipping quote, but if you click Review Order you'll be taken to a nonexistent page. I have been meaning to do a full overhaul of this website for a while, and this is as good a reason as any to get on with it. The site may be down for a while when I do that.

In the meantime, I can send Paypal invoices if you email with what you wanted to buy, in what quantity, and your shipping address.

Tips & Tricks

Techniques and colour combinations to try out, plus how to work those thick rods on Hot Head torches.

Label info

Want to know what the numbers and date on your glass refer to? They have meaning!

Annealing schedule

Lauscha glass has a slightly different annealing schedule - it prefers to be a tad hotter than most 104 CoE schedules. If you're having cracking problems, check this first.

Note on weights

The weight of glass you receive can have an error of +/- 2g. In almost all cases you will receive more than this, but when ordering small quantities (100g) of thicker rods, the rods can weigh 49g apiece. I do my best to avoid this situation, but if it occurs I will make sure that you receive extra in one of your other colours.
