Moving Mud Extra Large Flat Glass Button Lavender Dusk

Moving Mud

Extra Large Flat Buttons:  1.5" in diameter with 2 shanks

This variety adds some depth and dimension to your work.

These aren’t your grandma’s buttons!   Made using the traditional glassblowing technique called lamp work, each button is made of borosilicate glass, which is pyrex. The glass is melted and formed by hand with a torch that combines oxygen and propane and then annealed.  Annealing is a strengthening process of slowly cooling glass to relieve internal stresses by using a kiln.  It reinforces the glass to a near unbreakable durability. Buttons that are made with shanks are reinforced with a glass shank that is hot welded on.
