I am certain it will not be heat sensitive. Flashing on the inside requires inverting the bubble after flashing - it can be done and is but certainly unusual. But if you want to cut the exterior without removing colour it is the only way. And clearly the case in these particular pieces.

Some of them have a definite cased look. You look on the rim and there is a MM or so of cased glass on the inside the intaglio cutting is on the outside and thus has the look of the color of glass lining the inside of the piece.

But other times there is no apparent layer in the glass and the intaglio cutting appears to be the color of the glass. Looking from the top down it looks a solid lavender in color. no clear showing at all.  When you look from the base down there appears to be no lavender. it's all clear.

this one is an example of that (although I don't have a pic of the rim on my webpage) This particular example is a monster. It weighs about 8 pounds.
