These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

:twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

I might be tempted to use it as a coaster for very hot things.

Or tiling for a urinal.

 :D I have a bit of a problem with slumped glass. Why is it always that really green sort of clear glass that is used? The sort of green that screams "utility, double-glazed windows" and precludes me seeing it as art?

Often ordinary window glass is used as the cheapest resource.

:shock:  I like it too Paul!  It has that kind of sludgy 60's look about it and it does look like an owl - another very 60's design theme - it'd sit great in my e-shop (what does that say about my stock?) LOL

Sorry Paul,
but I think it's horrid!
I loved the triffid, but this specimen is truly grotesque.
Wouldn't suffer it in my house! :lol:
