Default Re: Are KM's Glass Vases More Fragile than Nour's and MZ's?

the vases are bade by blowing glass into moulds, the issue here is that it is hard to keep consistent thickness throughout the piece, especially when you are making something this thick.

depending on what material they use for the moulds it could be causing the glass to be weaker (steel/metal moulds while they last for ever will chill the glass and can give it microscopic cracks which let it break easily)
