Glass furnaces are used to make raw glass (a gem), blocks, and furniture items. All furniture made at a glass furnace can also be made out of either metal, stone or wood instead, with the exception of windows, which can only otherwise be made from gems. Glass furnaces can make craft goods, and vials (which are used to make extracts.) 3 Clear glass vials are needed to build an alchemist's laboratory. Raw glass is sometimes a component needed to make artifacts.

Glass furnaces can make green glass, clear glass, and crystal glass goods. Green glass goods require sand, clear glass requires sand and pearlash, and crystal glass requires raw rock crystals and pearlash. Raw rock crystals are a type of gem and are usually very difficult to find.

Many of the names of glass furniture are different. A glass door is called a portal, and a glass coffer is called a box.

Glass furnaces are also needed to issue the "collect sand" order. This requires an empty bag, and Item Hauler, and a zone designated for sand collection. Collection of sand and making of glass items is usually more efficient if you make a Glass furnace and set it to collect sand, and then have another (Magma glass furnace) churn out glass items, as the "Collect Sand" task will keep the furnace occupied and unavailable for other tasks until the sand collection is completed. A good glassmaker's shop will become rapidly cluttered with empty bags, so it may be beneficial to occasionally swap which shop makes glass and which shop gathers sand.

Not all maps have a source of sand and neither raw nor cut glass of any type may be imported. Raw rock crystals may not be imported. Foreign merchants never have glass furniture for sale.
