Hi All,

I have the glass (pyrex) for a 24" mirror blank. Actually, it is a broken 24" mirror (don't ask - its a long story. see In any event, I've been wondering what my options are for turning this box of glass pieces back into a single mirror blank.

Anybody got and experience with casting glass blanks? Who might be equipped to do such a job? Any guess as to the cost? All thoughts are welcome. Thanks.
