Some times the best way to repair a piece is a minor change.   A beautiful art glass vessel came in with a broken base.  The art glass compote was make from a soda lime glass so fusing the pieces together was not an option. Reheating would change the color of the glass.  The base was badly broken and pieces were missing so using an adhesive would have shown .  The artist was contacted but returning for  restoration was not an option. The  making a new base was the best solution.
