Most new 3″ round glass domes have a bead on the bottom. The bead gives greater strength to the glass. This bead is created by holding the glass dome at the top and rotating it while applying a gas flame near the point of its height. The glass melts at that point with the bottom dropping off and leaving a bead to seal the work. Oval glass domes do not have this bead generally since the flame can not be held in place as the dome rotates.
Many of our customers have the feeling that older glass domes will have more bubbles. This is generally not the case. It is the desire of all glass blowers to not have bubbles in the glass.
