OUR MISSION: To facilitate communication among glass artists, to encourage education and promote excellence in the glass arts.


The glass chipping pattern is subject to many variables. The duplication
and uniformity of each pattern is dependent on control of these variables.
There are many variables to be considered, The major ones are:

  1. Glass - type and surface preparation
  2. Room temperature during preliminary drying stage
  3. Glue - type, concentration, temperature at time of application
  4. Weight of dry glue applied per sq. ft. of glass
  5. Dryness of glue film at end of preliminary drying stage
  6. Temperature of drying room during chipping process
