What Are Your Favorite Tools?


No matter what you’re into – mosaics, stained glass, glass fusing, or glass jewelry – Delphi always has the tools you need to be creative. Without your tools, it would be impossible to bring to life all the incredible ideas that you dream up. As our 26th Annual Art Glass Festival quickly approaches, we know our glass artists are busy fusing, firing, and cutting to create their best pieces ever by using their favorite tools.


So what are your favorite tools? Let’s explore some of our most popular tools.


Toyo Dry Wheel Supercutter

Everyone loves this oil-free cutter because it’s easy to use and makes great cuts without all the clean-up. Plus, it’s very durable and the cutter head is replaceable, making this tool a prime choice for glass artists.


Creators Premium Bottle Cutter

Glass artists that love to upcycle love this tool that makes cutting bottles a cinch. The rings isolate your score to make it easier to separate bottles. It even works on those thick champagne bottles. Some amazing bottle art has been created using this fantastic tool.


Frit Sifter

Once you create frit, this wonderful tool helps you separate it out into various sizes with ease. Powder, fine, medium, and coarse grits sizes make for quick and easy sifting so you can get back to being creative.


Diamond File Set

Creating glass jewelry takes plenty of patience thanks to all those small little pieces. This set of tools helps you reach all those even the hardest to reach places, making this an essential tool set for every jewelry-making artist.


Diamond Max 2-in-1 Grinder

Everyone’s favorite grinder does it all. It’s the first of its kind to combine a flat diamond disk for making perfectly straight edges with a router style bit to create curves. You can run them both simultaneously without having to switch back and forth. With a stellar warranty, this grinder is amazing for fusing projects and has been touted as the most powerful tool in glass.
