Whether we blast it, melt it, grout it, cut it, or grind it, we all love glass and want more people to join the fun. So if you know someone whose grinder is holding open the cellar door instead of shaping glass, ask them to join us and come on back to glass. (Don’t forget to encourage some newbies, too!)
