I thought I'd share a nice beginner video teaching how to cut glass from the Corning Museum of Glass. It's especially helpful for people that want to start making fused glass jewelry and even stained glass windows but don't know how to cut glass! In the video, the person scores the glass with the glass cutter while pulling it towards them, although I actually cut the opposite direction - away from me. I find it much easier to see the pattern that I'm cutting if I cut forward. If I pull the cutter towards me, my hand covers and hides the pattern piece that I want to cut!

Be sure to check out the Corning Museum webpage it is excellent. They also have a lot of videos on YouTube as well.
