A sandblaster makes a great poor-man's waterjet.  The raven in the piece below was cut by using a buttercut resist to mask the bird and then moving slowly around the edge with the blasting nozzle about 1/2 inch from the glass.

It took about 20 minutes using silicon carbide and a pressure pot setup.
