John,

   If you know anything about 'Appliqué Glass', you know it is NOT
glued; the appliqués are formed separately, then applied
when both the appliqué and the bottle are hot enough
that the glass appliqué will adhere to the glass bottle.
They can be thin and they can be made to curve around the bottle.
And then a thin thread of glass can be applied if needed.
My bottle has flower head and leaf appliqués applied,
and then a thread of green glass to make the design look like a flower.
Best,
Joey
