At this point, I now add glass to only one side of the triangle to bring it into the shape of the fishes body.

I help the shape along a bit with my bbq mashers:

Half way there...

At what point you add the eye is up to you, for this fish I choose to leave an indent for the eye, you can also build it in as you add glass.

Slowly preheat the eye cane you made earlier, if you don't have much you don't want it to crack.

Lay it down slowly and flame cut it off away from the gather.

You could flame cut it off very close to the gather, but I like to leave a cut end so you can see the cross section.

And then bury it in...
Trapping air is something you want to avoid, but when you pull it out into a gather anything but the largest bubbles will be invisible.
