Re: "Dumbing down" of glass art?

Hey y’all. I’ve been gone from WG for years now, but just dropped in to say hey to those folks I’ve grown to know over the years from this board. I’m in contact with several of the original members when this started close to 18 years back. If I’ve missed anyone, friend me on FB. So after working wit...

Slumped glass form

We used to call them floppy bowls, rounds of glass places on top of a cylindrical SS form, like an old milkshake mixing container. What do you folks call the bowls they make. Haven't seen them in years.

Re: Minimum temperature needed to get reaction

As some people have found, each result will be a bit different according to the conditions of ones studio practice and kiln. My advise would be to experiment and see what happens in your kiln. I would think that time AND/OR temperature would give you the answers you are looking for.

[size=150]Does anyone have any thoughts?[/size]

It took me many years to figure my drop forming method. Try Karl Herrons 3 piece slumping set. Its much easier and all the rage I hear.

Re: Shipping to France from the US

Delores. Check BAX Global. They always come through for me with international shipping and provide insurance and customs forms and good help. In the US I prefer USPS.

Chuck Close

Inspiration is for amateurs, so says artist Chuck Close in a video short about what he would say to his younger self. I tend to agree, its all about the work.
