Crackle Glass

Crackle glass is very unique.  It is also known as Craquelle glass, ice glass, and overshot glass.  In the 16th Century the Venetian Glass Makers invented this process. While it was hot the the glass would be immersed in cold water which would cause the crackling of the glass. The glass would then be reheated and could be molded or hand blown into whatever shape was wanted. The cracks in the glass would be sealed with the reheating process. Surprisingly the inside of the glass is smooth to the touch. Some glass makers are still using the same methods today.
