The paper reports on the development of prototypes of glass instruments. The focus has been on developing acoustic instruments specifically designed for electronic treatment, and where timbral qualities have had priority over pitch. The paper starts with a brief historical overview of glass instruments and their artistic use. Then follows an overview of the glass blowing process. Finally the musical use of the instruments is discussed.
