Do any of you remember this sort of glass art?

Years ago, my DH's Grandmother would scavage several for different colors of glasses, jars, bottles, etc. She would bake them in the oven for awhile and then put them directly into ice cold water to crack. Then supposedly she would place them in a paper bag and break them. Well I tried all of this and it was working great until the breaking part. I ended up having to use a hammer to break it more and still didn't look like hers. She would glue them down to form pictures and I would love to try this. She has been gone for over 40 years and all of this info is from my MIL. I have read threads here talking about tumblers and am wondering what that is. My question is how do I crush something without turning into dust yet not huge chunks either? I have searched on the net and not finding anything. I would really appreciate your help. I am going to post this on a couple of different forums trying to get answers. Thanks again!
