I have been teaching myself how to work with tempered glass. I went to a salvage shop and got the driver's side window of a '96 Chrysler van. I had Seth, my loveable neighbor kid and his buddy shatter it for me. I started with silicone as an adhesive but,I am now using an epoxy resin since it is a little easier to move the glass pieces around. A Tetanus shot is a sure prerequisite for this kind of work.
La Exception is a cigar. And underneath the glass and blue grout are cigar labels, iridescent paper and bronze and gold foil wrappers from some chocolates I stole from work. Yum.
