The piece I had in the WG@BEII exhibit, "Tangerine", was published in Glass Craftsman in conjunction with an article about the exhibit and the conference. I was never asked permission to publish that image and it was a complete suprise to me that it was. I was wondering if perhaps I had signed a wa...

Dunno how many people actually test with polarizing lenses. I’d be curious to know. It’s simple, it’s cheap; if the project is important, why not? I do. I test when I use non tested compatible stained glass, float, and sometimes Uro with BE. Although I have a few larger sheets of polarized fi...

Thanks to Pete and Lani for saying things better than I could. I'm especially thankful for Pete's efforts in the area of trying to expand the kiln-forming presence within GAS. It will take time, but at least it's moving in the right direction.

Re: Different from BE conference?

Just checking my own sanity. This is different than the Oct. BE conference, right? Details on that? Bullseye is having a conference called BECon in Portland in early August. This conference, which is the first of its type, is for educator. You must apply to participate. More details at this website...

Use the Mail Merge Wizard that's part of Microsoft Word.

You can find the Mail Merge Wizard under the Tool...

How are nominees chosen? Is there a nominating committee that solicits interested parties far enough in advance for warmglass to have made a selection?

I think it was probably the ancient Mesopotamians, around 1500 BC. But don't worry, I'm sure there's someone alive who will claim to have invented it.

Small molds take longer to slump than large ones. In general, you should keep the slumping temperature below 1300F (some people never go above 1200, but for small items 1275 is fine). You want to vary the TIME you spend soaking at the temperature. It's not unusual to have to soak 1/2 hour or longer ...

I think Pete VanderLaan sells it, but not sure. He's the moderator over at craft web. Amy Pete handles (or at least used to handle, I know his wife still uses it) a competitive product, which I believe is less expensive and said to be comparable to Hxtal: http://www.guadalupeglass.com/Guadalupe%20G...

Brad - anybody. Please try that link again and let me know. It works for me. The reason it would work for you and not for others is that the photo is already cached on your PC from when you originally looked at the site.

I noticed that with this link, Jerry, they actually come up with a page that says "image referrals not allowed." That's a lot more considerate than places like Yahoo, which just refuse to work properly.

I would agree with Ron. That said, there are a number of contaminants that can impact elements. Most of these are more likely to happen in ceramic kilns than in glass kilns, and most result in degradation of the elements, not in causing the element to sag. Here's a url that has some info about eleme...

Replies: 19

Despite what you've been told, I would refuse flat rather than try to reslump in the original mold. Assuming a bowl-shaped mold, if you refire to 1400, the glass will slip down the sides and you will probably get some buckling and such in the bottom. The shape will definitely change. Refiring to fla...

Virtually all sheets are compatible with themselves, so if you're using only sheet, you shouldn't have to worry about compatibility.

IMNSHO, nothing beats a well prepared kiln shelf.

At the risk of being out-Googled, here's what I hope is a simpler explanation. Annealing is the process of slowly and carefully cooling glass so that stress is removed. Tempering is a process of rapidly cooling glass so that stress remains in a specific pattern. One of the characteristics of tempere...
