Frit/making ground glass

This tube like instrument grinds glass to chips, or a power as course of rough as you would like. You put large chips of glass in the tube, then pound up and down with the inner tube. After many repetitions of pounding, then you will have frit, or ground glass.

This picture shows the how the inner tubes slides into the larger pounding the frit into a powder. This can then be sprinkled on to a sheet of glass to make an image or picture.
