My father-in-law turned a beautiful 2ft (approx) high hourglass for my wife
and I a few years ago. Sadly my daughter broke the glass in it today and my
wife is very upset.
Does anyone know of a supplier of the hourglass for such a large size? My
father in law believes you cannot get them anymore.
I hope he is proved wrong.
a scientific glass blower could make you one pretty easily. you need to find
one with a large enough glass lathe. try calling your chem department in a
local university for recommendations for one.

If you don't have any luck finding the glass component "off the shelf",
email a few glass blowers. I've had good luck with having custom glass
pieces blown/crafted for commissions such as kaleidoscopes and curved fused
glass for cabinet doors. I'm sure a custom hour glass design wouldn't be
out of the question. Prices are usually reasonable.
Cheers and good luck,
I did a quick search and came up with this guy:
It doesn't look like he sells the glass itself, but you might ask him
where he got his to replace your broken one. (At least this tells you
they're still available.)
