How to use this calculator


This calculator assumes your pot drop will be a circle. You can specify the target size by diameter (distance across the middle of the circle) or by circumference (distance around the circle).


Most glass will usually try to be about 5 mm thick when left to its own under full fuse temperatures. Thicker pieces can be achieved by damming the glass.


Probably the most useful scenario for this tool is determining the amount of glass needed for a desired size pot drop. When solving for weight, you can still set the unit of measure (grams or ounces) and your results will be displayed in that unit.


Soda-lime glass includes most popular art glasses including Bullseye, Spectrum, Uroboros and float. If you aren't sure what kind of glass you have it is probably soda-lime.
