Forming Trays & Marvers

A forming tray is a tool that you can use to roll in, as well as press a shape from.  Many times forming trays are open-ended, like the Crunches so that there is no restriction at the ends.  The glass is free to flow out and leave perfectly puckered holes.  While you can roll your glass along it or against it, you can also press a shape out at any point on the tool for many different shapes and effects.  Forming trays are very versatile!

New Year's Special - Angled Marver  

This marver is getting great reviews. People are saying "they don't know how they ever lived without it". This marver will let you toss out that razor. One side of this Marver has one very sharp angle that continues half way over the top of the marver. The other side has a sharp double angle that again meets in the middle of the top.

This marver is offered at a discounted price $55.00 with the purchase of another press or base. If you want to add a book of foil, please choose the correct item in the pull down menu below. (Unfortunately this marver isn't available for purchase by itself.)
