Thank you for whatever you did to make the photos show up on your post. I tried many times to look at images and always got the 'sorry' message- I thought it was another attempt at making us mac users the 'step-children' of the internet. :( Anyway, I think the sculpture is VERY interesting. Your use...

Hi Jen and welcome! I guess I'll jump in here since no one has replied to your question. I believe there is a large learning curve to making a sink that will not break under normal use, especially if you have not fused before. I would start with the tutorials on basic fusing, then I would start maki...

Nikki, I haven't fired it yet. I set a design up on 1" thick fiberbord this morning. I'm timing it to see how long it takes to harden/dry. This stuff is the consistancy of snot! Like flour dough that is too wet. I thought it would be more like caulk (don't know why I assumed that!) I have a simple d...

Thanks Charlie, my google search turned up Skutt products site but I couldn't find it in the info. The link you provided was more helpful. So, I guess it is a kiln repair thing. Do you think I can still use it the way I mentioned? (I have about 6 tubes of this stuff and would really like to find a u...

Inswool Pumpable/uses

Has anyone ever used this product? RHI Refractories of America- Inswool pumpable? It is in a tube that looks like what calk comes in. I think I can use it to make designs, etc. on fiber paper or perhaps to detail a mould. It did not come with any instructions and I can't remember where I originally ...

I am really enjoying this thread, but need a little clarification on some of the opinions. When you all are talking about something being 'new' and 'it's all been done before', I'm a little unclear exactly what is being said. Let's say that adding oxides to glass is not something new because lots of...

Hey, that looks almost just like mine. 4" dia. steel tube with 8x8 steel plate welded on bottom. Handle is something like 3 7/8" steel rod with handle welded to it. One fits very neatly inside the other. Took the welder about 10 min. to make, and costs me nuthin'....yeah, that's the ticket.

Luiza,

Try alchemyglass.com without the hyphen.

Monochrome sinks are 3/4" thick.
The fused sinks are 1" thick. (2 pcs of 1/2" float fused).

Martha, The best advice anyone can give is to research. There are as many answers as there are types of kilns. I think if you take the time to search the archives,(I know, it is a lot of reading) you will find tons of helpful information that will (hopefully) let you make an informed decision. Good ...

Ooooh Patricia, those ancient cave drawings!!!! I fell in love with them after reading Jean Auel's Earth Children series- she was so inspired by those images after visiting the caves that she wrote them into her stories. I have been exploring putting down glass powders and then 'drawing' through the...

Gee, our company has been fusing copper inclusions for well over 10 years (fish, sealife, leaves, suns, moons, bugs, logos, etc.) Hope we aren't copying anyone.

You have to ask yourself this: Do you really want to make tons of $$$ (along with all the numerous business headaches that Kevin mentioned, among others), make the same thing over and over and over again OR express yourself as an artist?
