that is because you only want to heat shisha up by the hot air passing from the coals then holes and throught the shisha. If yhe shinny side is down then you have more heat that is not really necesary and makes the smoke harsh
but a glass screen works just fine without any direct airflow shisha? >.>
I really think the heat produced when the coals are hotter during the draw is not really what makes the shisha smoke....and its really just the heating from the oven-like features of the bowl that give it its good smoke.
