Yeah, real nice work. I'm guessing you would do a rebound test with a marble!

You may want to consider making the base/feet thicker. They look prone to chipping/breaking at the thickness they are now.

I LIKE em, a little tuning up and I think you have a very marketable item on your hands. A thicker foot is a good idea, stronger and look better. I think you have something excellent brewing. As good as the anvils look the banana looks more real. <VBG>

Aww man... be neat to have a set of ice trays/forms for making ice cubes for the drinks at forge meetings/hammer ins. Sorry... my imagination got triggered. Cool looking knick-knacks. I have to agree with the others that it'd look even better with thicker feet.

You have a marketable produce there- if blacksmiths are willing to pay you know it is a hit.

Fix the base, make more colors and get busy casting!

Where can we see them for sale?

would also be nice to have a crucible to pour the water(or orange juice for colour effect) into the ice tray, (my imagination got triggered too)

Thicker base, air bubbles? don't know if i like them with or without, kinda gives them that used not new anvil look. Marketable all over the world. good idea

I like!    figured out pricing yet?  i'd suggest several styles other than farrier also.  and thicker feet .  black glass would look cool, like black Onyx or anthracite.

Gabe,  I have been looking for small glass transparent or translucent anvils for a couple of projects I am doing involving ACME Products.

Can I buy 1 or two from you?  I plan on making my own as I have a programmable temp controll Kiln good to 2,000° but don’t know or have never done glass casting let alone making a mold, I have made the model out of wax and I think I need to order a specific type of Clay??

until then, can you help me?

thanks so much,

You realize this thread is from 2014 and the original poster has not been on the site since then.

Always good to check the last first and last posts dates.
