    Casting large pieces of glass is a very time consuming process. After the casting process, it takes weeks to cool, as if it cools too fast it will break.

    Greg Lundgren is an artist in Seattle that does a lot of work with thick cast glass. He or his assistants may be able to provide you with information.
