Borosilicate glass, aka boro, is familiar to most of us as Pyrex. It's the hardest glass available. Art boro is colored with metals and minerals, and many of the colors have a rich dose of silver. As we work it in the flame, the gas and O2 from our torch brings out different colors. Results are always unpredictable, and that's all part of the fun!
