Miter Cut - (Glass Cut)

Miter Cut - (Glass, Cut) On a glass blank the main design would be outlined with deep V-shaped cuts. These are called Miter Cuts and can be straight or curved. During the American brilliant period designs became more elaborate, cutters added curved shapes to make their designs more graceful or dynamic. When the curved cuts meet, as in this example, it is sometimes called a "Gothic Arch". The tiny parallel cuts within this example of curved miter are called "crosshatching".
