Because I tend consistently to throw goblet bowls too small, I decided to make just the stems and to glue on wine glass tops.  I've done a little research about the best glues, but there's nothing like the voice(s) of experience to reassure me.  I use E6000 for my Redneck Wine Glasses (glass to glass; no pottery involved) with a disclaimer saying "Not Dishwasher Safe" because I don't know whether the glue will withstand the dishwasher temperatures.  Have any of you done the glass goblet tops to stoneware or porcelain stems and found a glue/bonding agent that you would recommend?  Thanks!

Hxtal is an archival glue used with primarily glass products that I would see performing this duty fairly well. There are a couple other options, but this is the one you'll see most used for archival work.

For the bases of the "Re-Imagined Glass" I put together I use clear 2 part epoxy. I've been using the brand available at Harbor Freight. Not dishwasher safe and it tends to yellow over time, but I've not had any problem with staying together. I've also heard of folks doing what your doing and sticking it together with silicon.

E6000 will do the job well
I knew a potter who did thousands and they held up well on bmix stems

Another vote for E6000.  It gives you a bit of time to reposition.  I use it for metal to ceramic.

E-6000 is a great glue, but unfortunately the max temp is only around 150* - so I wouldn't recommend it for dishwashers.  


JB weld (original formula) is rated for a constant 500*F temp and up to 600*F.  Another great 2-part paste epoxy is the PC brand (like PC-7 and PC-11) - they are slightly stronger than JB weld, stick to almost ANYTHING, and will go up to 200*F, so they might work in a dishwasher as well.  Only problem with JB and PC is they aren't clear.

Forget the E6000. If you're bonding glass to ceramics, the E6000 doesnt stand up to UV light.  ---->  As in "Oops, I left my goblet on the kitchen counter and the blinds were open, guess I have a two part goblet..." For ceramic to ceramic bonding where there is no transfer of UV light through the material, E6000 will work decently.


Again, I'll make the suggestion of Hxtal. If you can afford it, use it.

Colby's post made me curious.  Here's a little more about Hxtal if you want some additional information.  Cure period is one week.





Hxtal is the stuff museums and glass artists use to permanently bond glass to stuff. I do some work as a studio assistant for Dan Clayman from time to time. Below is a link to demonstrate this stuff:

This site has a list of glues for glass and pottery



I might try a UV curing glue and get a UV flashlight if you're going to be doing this often but I haven't worked with that before myself.
