    We did it using a tile saw:

    Cutting drop vase using tile saw

    Hold the rim tight against the blade, and slowly rotate the piece, cutting only a ittle of the glass with each rotation.  It will take several rotations to get through the glass.

     

    You are watching Brad Walker at warmglass.com demonstrate the technique at a workshop at his studio in July, 2011.

    Thank  you for posting the picture.  I have tried doing this but could not figure out how to cut off the rim, and this picture saved me countless tries in the near future!
