What kind of glass do you have?

I'm just being nosy. You may choose more than one kind.

I'm just doing great today! I forgot to click the allow multiple choice button! GGGGRRRR Hang on everybody, I'll see if the moderators can fix this, otherwise I'll just post another thread.

Multiple chioce is now active. If you've already responded to this thread you are still able to come back in and vote, if you wish.

Re: What Kinds of Glass do you Have?

I have:

Moretti
Vetrofond
Lauscha

Bullseye rods and sheets

Would love to try Satake and Czech glass, and of course boro when the time comes. Still haven't set up my new studio room yet.

Re: What Kinds of Glass do you Have?

I have and use regularly:

Moretti/Effetre
Vetrofond
Lauscha
Czech

I have and don't use much (or at all) yet:

Bullseye
Spectrum
Uroborus
Northstar
Glass Alchemy

So much glass. So little time. <sigh>

I mark the ends of the rods with dots of nail polish in different colors so I don't mix them up!

Re: What Kinds of Glass do you Have?

Hi,

I also have Vertrofrond, Lauscha, and a small amount of Bullseye. Would love to try some Satake on my little HH!

Re: What Kinds of Glass do you Have?

I voted moretti, but also have vetrofond, lauscha, and 2 big boro punties. (LOL)

I had bullseye, but sold it off.

In the process of ordering satake.

Re: FIXED AGAIN! What kind of glass do you have?

I also use quite a bit of Bullseye...I like the fact that it is made in the USA!

Re: FIXED AGAIN! What kind of glass do you have?

Alex, you poor thing

I picked all sorts of stuff just to screw up your poll! MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Ahem...just kidding. Too much coffee, don'tcha know?

I was using Moretti pretty much exclusively and I still have quite a bit of it left, but I must say that I'm very much enamored with the Vetrofond. I have some Lauscha too, but I'm not as impressed with it. And I have some GA and NS boro on its way to live with me where I'll torture it by holding it over fire until it bends to my will (or that of gravity).

I voted Moretti, Vetrofond, Lauscha, but I also used BE rod and sheet glass.

I have some unidentified stained glass as well.
