Ursa - Northstar
Ursa is a response to our artists who have been asking for an opaque brown. Due to environmental concerns, we have experimented with the alternatives to the industry standard cadmium based brown. We have formulated Experimental #3 with a good working viscosity, as well as dense color saturation to help the artists explore this earth tone. As with many opaque colors this glass can suffer from boiling issues if pushed too fast or hot.
Second quality glass can have the properties of odd quality glass, but may also have small stones, air bubbles, vary in tone/shade, or the shape can be very out of round. Both odd and second quality glass can provide a great value to the right person.
