Default Broken vase

So, i thought that i would be courteous and let my sister finish off the rest of my bowl. A few minutes later, i hear this loud crashing sound. Its my vase to my month old syrian.....gah, i told her not to hold it by the stem but oh well, looks like im making her buy me one of those nice sahara vases, if they fit that is. Ill see if i can get some pics of the broken glass, its really a sad sight.

Yea, the base made quite the explosion. Considering i had ice in it before smoking it and it was prolly very brittle. I found glass pieces about 7 feet away.....it landed on carpet mind you

being cold wont make it brittle (at least by any measurable amount) in fact when blowing glass it is easier to break when it is hot as apposed to "cold" (granted cold is 900-1000*f and hot when you can break it is probably 1200-1300 give or take but still)

if it broke on carpet it had to be made poorly or hit something very hard on the way down. i would be willing to be there was a flaw in the glass or there was some tinny cracks you couldnt see that got there some how before hand (be it from shipping, use, or just poor crafting)

theres 2 reasons for that, one from a method of coloring the glass (but probably not the case for you) or from the glass being "seedy", which is where when the glass gets melted the heat is not controlled properly through out the "charging" (melting glass to fill the furnace). small bubble are not a huge issue, more of a visual flaw than much of a strength issue

and that sir is the reason that bases break, even production glass like that is used for hookahs should not be as cheap as it is (in price or in quality)

see, i wont carry others rigs by the stem but both my rigs and tight enough to be totally fine with it (plus the one that is tension as apposed to threaded is acrylic so theres probably no to little risk of breaking)
