Glasscaster: Hot Glass Talk in a High-Tech World
Join Marcie Davis in her international glass adventures. Travel the world...without leaving home.

If you've ever wanted to throw caution to the wind and shatter your glass before you play with it, you've come to the right place! Tony Glander loves breaking tempered glass and reassembling it, then popping it into his kiln for transformation.

In this interview he'll tell you about his "Shatterglass" technique, his photographic screen printing, evolution as an artist, and what inspires him. 

He thinks in marvelous and mysterious ways, loving to break the rules that we've come to think of as norms in fused glass work.
