Studio Nuggets from Oceanside

While Oceanside's original intention for these super clear glass chunks is to provide glass blowers with feed stock for their furnace, they also work very nicely for casting.

These glass "pillows" are roughly 1˝ x 1 x ˝" thick. Use care when handling, as they do have sharp edges. There will be some "broken" pillows and chunks of pillows in each bag/box.

COE 96 (Oceanside Compatible) means it will work with all of Oceanside's frits, stringers, rods and sheet glass.

Feedback from our customers using this product for kiln casting has been very positive. Pieces fuse up with no detectable stress and minimal bubbles.

Sold in

  • 10 lb boxes (approx 150-160 pillows)  $36.99
  • 20 lb boxes (approx 300-320 pillows)  $66.99
  • 50 lb sacks (as shipped form the factory) $149.95
