I am inspired by an image from a recent question here. I couldn't figure out how to model (Maybe texture) the look and feel of sharp glass edges around a spherical shape and SubSurf.

Ref image


A quick example

To make glass just model it to how u want it to look, try and keep it as random as u can. enter image description here

Then just add a glass material https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRRN7yzPNQI btw your glass should look way better if u follow the tutorial i just added the material without doing anything to it in the photo below enter image description here

Also if u dont want to use cycles u can just turn down the transparency (alpha) as ive done here https://sketchfab.com/models/177e494fdada4b64b02acf041ae8cfdd enter image description here

Edit: Something like this? enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Thank you... but "Spherical" and with a subsurf modifier. And random angled edges so it looks real. $\endgroup$ – Dontwalk Mar 7 '18 at 5:18
