    By "regular" glass do you mean broken bottles etc?
    If so then it might be possible but you'd have to test a piece in the kiln first...even then it's risky as it could still discolour + you'd have to anneal it or it might crack...

    Might be better to set it after using epoxy resin, or buy glass designed for that purpose

      pmc will in small quantities adhere and remain fixed to ceramic pieces

      Nic's advice is right, test first.
      PMC is not my speciality (ceramics is) but I think also you might bear in mind that if you test a small piece of pmc on glass it may look ok, but as you increase in scale, if there is a significant difference in the COE, you may still have problems.
      Certainly we know that pmc will in small quantities adhere and remain fixed to ceramic pieces after firing.
