A hemisphere tank with a diameter of 3 or 4 feet, into which the molten glass is scooped out

Barite glass

Glass, which includes barite, surpasses ordinary alkaline-lime glass in density and brilliance


An additional structural element of the glass mold, which allows you to place an additional portion of frit prior to melting

Bevels (facet elements)

curly volumetric glass elements used in the manufacture of stained glass

Safety glass

Glass, which when broken forms fragments, the likelihood of serious cuts which are much less than fragments of ordinary glass. This is usually tempered glass.

Safety glass

Silicate sheet glass that does not form fragments with cutting edges upon impact or concentrated pressure. Shatterproof is ensured by the presence inside the package of two or more layers of glass of a firmly bound elastic transparent strip of organic material or a metal mesh included in the glass


(from the Arabian busra) - small decorative colored glass beads with a hole for stringing on a thread, fishing line or wire

Bisher process

Periodic stained glass manufacturing process in which glass from a pot is cast between rolls on a moving roller conveyor or on a flat movable table


Relatively flat, artistic glassware obtained as a result of sintering and intended for further volumetric molding using swelling technology

Feeder Well Block
