Hi Glass-Addiction, it's nice to have you join the forum. You'll meet some wonderful folks here. I'm sorry I can't help you but did want to welcome you. You might be able to do a "search" on the first page of the forum as it opens up - look for the "white" search box near the top and type in "cutting tea cups" - anyone who has posted something on that subject will come up and you can search those msgs.

Again, welcome to the forum.

Hi Newbie, Welcome to the forum. It's too much fun here. I could guess how to cut tea cups, but the people over at the Stained Glass and Mosaics Forum probably KNOW how to cut them. Linda

Here is a link that might be useful: Stained glass and Mosaic Forum

The best way I've found is with a tile saw.
here are some i've done


I have a friend who scores them with a glass cutter and then snips with tile snips. But it's hit and miss. Sometimes she destroys the cup.

Your much better off with a small wet saw as mentioned before.
I have tried using nippers and sometimes the magic works and sometimes it doesn't.
