I wanted to ask all you lampworkers out there who read this blog – what do you do with all your shorts? For those who don’t know, shorts are pieces of glass, usually ranging between 1 and 3 inches long, that you have leftover from a rod of glass. The length is determined by how hot you are willing to let your fingers get – kind of like torch chicken!
My kiln is a fuser, but I don’t have any molds or anything that I can think of to use the shorts for. Does anyone have any ideas or resources? I’d be glad to sell them on ebay, but I don’t know that there’s a big market for them. I guess my other idea is to donate them to the glass center?
