First thing I saw as a kid was a marble,,,, and was always wondering how they got that color in there????? Ever since its always been an adventure trying to stretch the limits. if somebody likes it then that’s a bonus Glass is a constant challenge with lots of broken pieces but if you get it right then your always rewarded.
