Lab glass or art glass?   Art glass blowing is done in many schools and the fuel is whatever is cheapest:  natural and propane being the most common.

I am interested in knowing what fuel gas is being used at institutions with gas blowing operations involving quartz glass and best practices being used.  Also, could someone point me to a good reference for this type of work?
