Cold working glass is an art that can be learned and finishes your work. I will walk you thru my process. I am sure there are many other ways to do this on a wet belt sander or by hand but I prefer a wet lap. After a learning curve it is my go to method. My wet flat lap is a 12 inch variable speed unit from covington engineering. I had them make the stand higher as I am so tall. Flat laps are a big ticket item but worth it for me as I use it on most of my work.
This vessel happened because I did not watch the controller after I asked it to stop heating. (I was writing a blog). so I was left with a funky fun shape with possibilities. When I fused the original blank it also had a blow out as the ring was a small amount off the kiln shelf. No issues, as I cut the peg off with a tile saw.

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and process. I am currently learning how to finish drop vessels, and this has been very helpful. Do you know where I can buy cones from? I was struggling with finishing the inside of the vessels well. Thank you! Merryl
