Re: Navajo

Brad,
I reviewed patterns on a number of Navajo blankets and found some common themes throughout, such as the zig zag, then drew my own pattern which resulted in this piece. If you go to The Glass Hole Facebook page you can see photos of the build. Thanks for your nice comments. Tim

Re: Navajo

Survived the slump and now you can better see the edges. Someone asked about clear strips; There is no clear in this bowl. The lighter colors are Ivory and Almond. Thanks, Tim

Navajo

I had a good friend ask about making a strip bowl with a Navajo style pattern. This is what I ended up with. Just finished the edges and it goes in for slump this afternoon.

Re: Do I need to adjust my firing schedule when stacking she

I stack in my GL24. Just turn the top elements off and slow way down so that the heat reaches everything evenly. I've found that it works best with at least 6 inches between shelves. Tim

Re: kiln adhesive paper

You are probably thinging of No Days fusing adhesive squares. I don't know anyone who has used them. I find that Elmer's Blue Gel works well and burns off cleanly. It shoild be used very sparingly and not in the center of pieces or it will never set.

Re: Internet source for 4lb jars of uruborus frit

The Uroboros website has a list of distributors, but you can also buy direct from Uroboros if nothing else works.

Collision Bowl

The blank for this bowl bounced arond Dan Fenton's studios for many years. His partner Patti says that the glass is Bullseye circa Boyce. Recently his sister described to me how she watched Dan spend hours grinding each piece so that it fit against the others. Just prior to Dan's passing I had the h...

Re: Cheap saw/good blade?

I've been using this very saw for a while now with no complaints other than the table which has raised rubber areas which leaves a wider area at the gap than I would like. I also have a QEP which cost about 3 times as much. They both cut the same. Tim

Re: Burn out the wax

Put a couple inches of water in a pan, place your mold above the water using something like shelf posts, boild the water and steam out the wax. I like using a big pot with a lid. Some people fill with glass at this time and include their drying schedule in the ramp up. I prefer to dry my mold and bu...

Re: Almost There

Each of the characters, the barrel and the box are cast individually, then placed onto a wax base, reinvested, wax out, clear glass in.... so the piece is one solid piece, no glue. Tim

Re: Cellular

For those that have asked, the bowl is 12 inches across and about 3-1/2 inches deep. It started as stringer medium pattern on clear filled with powders placed on 2 layers of thin black and orange and fired. Broken black then placed with another orange layer on top, topped by already fired piece and ...

Re: fiber blanket under pot melt?

I use 1/8 fiber paper under almost all of my pot melts. I have never had trouble getting the fiber paper off using only water and a green scrubby.
