Below is the huge "Annealer" (a cooling chamber used to control the cooling process to avoid checking* 'cracking').  This slowly brings the heat of the glass down and is set at about 930 degrees.  It can take 18 to 22 hours for complete cooling.  This is a very important step to prevent the final piece from cracking or even exploding.
