The way they used to do that was to butt 2 pieces of glass together and bond it with epoxy.......

The trick is to grind the glass at an angle so that when you apply the silicone there is very little that is making the seal. I've seen glass that was squared and butted with silicone leaving almost 3/16"-1/4" of silicone showing. You will always see a line there, but it depends on how much time you take to make it fit reasonably.
