I was looking around reading up on glass. I found a good simple tutorial here

I then wondered if someone could make a mirror blank in a kiln. And so I came across a hot-glass hexagon kiln 23.5" diameter. You can fuse or slump with it. And I wondered if it could produce, with the right know how, a 20" molded blank? If you go to this site, go to- Products-- Hot Glass Kilns - model GTS23

...just a thought:)
