In our lesson Working Deep, we demonstrated how to design thick sections of glass with imagery and color embedded within the layers.

In this lesson, we'll use a similar method to make a thick slab of glass for a small tabletop working with a combination of sheet glass and billets for rapid assembly. You'll learn how to calculate the correct amount of glass and set up dams and weights to contain the project. Finally, we'll cover considerations for firing and coldworking the piece.
