Answer
Glass soldering has reference to soldering the mounting framework that holds the glass pieces into position.  Lamp shades are classical example of soldering to prepare the mounting of all the colored pieces of glass in order to achieve its design and aesthetics.

You cannot actually solder one piece of glass to another.  There are liquid glass repair kits that will fill in the crack or star chip in automobile windshields; but, alas, it is not soldering it is use of silicon material to fix and repair glass objects.

Hope this helps.
