Decades ago, Chase Barn Cloches were quite popular. They were composed of four sheets of horticultural glass, and an ingenious wire frame to hold them together, with a hoop at the top that enabled the whole cloche to be lifted and moved. They went out of favour, partly because great care was required to avoid breaking the glass, and partly because of the advent of cheap plastic alternatives.

I got hold of some 4mm toughened glass sheets and thought I would make some garden cloches out of them. 'Tent' cloches - two pieces of glass clipped together at the top - do not provide much space inside, so I wanted to make 'barn' cloches, and these are the appropriate clips. Agricultural glass is usually 3mm thick, so my 4mm glass was a tight fit, but it worked. At least six clips are required for each 'barn cloche'. I found it easiest to construct the cloches by holding two pieces of glass on end, using a flat-bladed screwdriver to prise open the jaws of the clips, and sliding the glass into place. It's a bit fiddley, but once you have done one or two, it gets much easier.

We live in a very windy spot, and I wanted to make sure that these would stand up to it. They were fine until it was windy AND rainy at the same time. The slippery wet glass just slipped out from between the jaws of the clips when the wind was gusting. As the glass was toughened, it did not break. I would say that these clips are only suitable if you can be sure of constructing your barn cloches in a very sheltered area, especially if you use horticultural glass, which will form very dangerous shards if it breaks.

However, there is something else you can do with these clips. You can make a flat-topped barn cloche, using three bits of glass, instead of four.
