You may wish to look at the book:
Rossing, Thomas D. Science of percussion instruments. Singapore ; River Edge, NJ : World Scientific, c2000. xii, 208 p. Includes bibliographical references and indexes. Glass instruments: p. 182-191. (Series in popular science ; vol. 3) <ml3805.r83>
It is not a "how to" book, but gives a great deal of information about why percussive instruments work -- including glass ones.
