Re: Use of kiln space

Valerie This is probably a very naive question....when firing the samples of glass as you suggest, does it make any difference if I use the rolled edges of the glass? And to the others who answered.....if I am firing a thicker project with a longer anneal time, I assume it does not make any differen...

Re: Glass moved during slump

Marty
There was an earthquake a few years ago that rattled the windows in my office in Kingston ...very spooky.
Should I put my molds on kiln furniture when I slump?
I have not done that....everything so far seems to slump well.....except these little two 3 x 3s

All the molds have little holes in them & the holes are clear.
Are molds always supposed to be put on kiln furniture? Oh dear.....somehow I missed that

Re: Fusing schedule question

Thanks for the input. i used Laurie's suggested schedule and annealed it for three hours as she & Brock suggested. i used a top temp of 1460, so the piece has texture. I'm pleased with the results, although the edges are not even enough. I may have access to some cold working equipment or do som...

Glass moved during slump

Hi (again....am I asking too many questions?) Can anyone tell me why a piece of glass moves off the center of the mold during slumping? See photo below There were 4 squares in the kiln Two 3x 3 Two 4 x 4 The smaller ones both moved off center The larger ones remained fully on the molds Thank you Susan

Use of kiln space

Hi I'd appreciate some ideas of how to make better use of shelf space when firing. My shelf is 12.5 x 12.5. When I fire an 8 x 8 piece at a full fuse, there is a lot of empty space left on the kiln shelf. Other than making 3 x 3 coasters or mini dishes, I don't have any other ideas for using the spa...

Dams & strip construction

Hi My weekend project is to figure out how to replicate a strip constructed project I completed at a class. The strips and windows are cut and I plan to put them together tomorrow. I did not take good enough notes on setting up the dams around the constructed project. I've searched the forum but do ...

Re: glass cuttimg medium

Cat hair in the lid! I use cutter oil in a lid but leave it exposed. My cat likes to sit on my work table looking out the window. I'll start to protect the lid from his hair. Thanks for mentioning this.

Re: Glass cooling

Thanks, Bert. Good advice about investment in a piece. It is still so new to me. I am eager to fire more pieces as I experiemnt with techniques and it is such a slow process. My Olympic Champ xl kiln is too small!
