Re: firing irid, face-down

Laurie, thanks for the tip. I never sprayed kiln wash, but I will try this, because I fire irid face down a lot.

Re: firing irid, face-down

thanks for chiming in, Barry. are you firing on thin-fire or kiln-wash? and what temp are you saying is the safe one, to avoid this issue? (maybe you haven't encountered the issue). actually your comments are helpful because this is for a first firing of 3, and I have been going to 1480, but could g...

Re: firing irid, face-down

I am looking for prevention, not remedy. I will see if I can detect a pattern to the pits and marks...it doesn't happen every firing.

firing irid, face-down

For various reasons, I need to fire irid face-down. Bullseye confirmed that there can be problems firing it face-down onto thinfire, so I did it on a kiln-washed shelf. But...same problem
(markings). Has anyone had this problem and resolved it?
Thanks.

Re: Ted Talk - Art vs Craft

the Cremonese violin makers succeeded in two fields at once---acoustics and craft. you can have an instrument that looks gorgeous and sounds terrible, and one that looks terrible and sounds great. they did both, and the results have lasted and lasted.

Re: Expensive Lessons

it "can" leave a cloudy residue...may not happen every time. if you're lucky, it won't happen often.

glass jewelry project for a nine year old?

Any suggestions for a good glass jewelry project for a nine-year-old? I will be visiting her, bringing a small kiln. I was thinking we could make many pendant blanks..first making frit balls, then using stringer bits. also a little tiny kiln-carving. any other ideas? thanks in advance.

Re: New Work--"Inner Life of a Tree #4"

Hi, it's 24.5" high, about 20" wide at the widest point, and 3" deep.
the glass is about 8mm thick--highly kilncarved and lots of stringer.

Re: coldworking mirror--like regular glass?

it is far more humble..just for a base for my glass. I just want to customize the size/shape of the mirror.

Re: Customers Asking for Discounts

Personally, I cannot imagine asking for a discount. I assume that the price was thought through. Why would I want to insult anyone? I think having a sign saying "Buy 2, get 10% off" is good, but of course it doesn't apply to commissioned work, unless the customer is thinking of two pieces,...
