Here, we cover strategies for successfully reheating pre-fired work, the cumulative effect of heatwork on glass, how to anneal works that have been fired multiple times, as well as some special considerations.
In this lesson we'll demonstrate how to design and fabricate your own lighting sconce.
In this lesson, you'll learn about design, setup, and firing considerations for kilncarving billets, as well as some variations.
In this lesson you will learn how to prepare a wax model, how to make a two-layered refractory mold, how to steam the wax out of the mold, and successfully cool and clean the piece.
Box casting is a great way to create a reverse-relief, cast-glass object with exceptional clarity. This process is ideal for producing multiple editions of a piece.
Learn how to create a kilncarved design using ceramic fiber paper, how to fire and finish a piece of work, and how glass behaves at the various temperatures used in this basic forming method.
This lesson covers two of the most common causes of a piece breaking: thermal shock and improper annealing.
In this lesson, you will learn considerations for preparing a model, tips for making an open-faced mold and calculating the amount of glass needed to fill it.
In this lesson, using what you learned in "Firing: Basic Principles" you will design firing schedules for fusing, tack-fusing and slumping a platter with a textured surface.
In this lesson you will learn how to achieve a variety of surface textures and finishes with frit by varying time and temperature in the kiln.
In this lesson you will learn about the relationship between heatwork and color in sheet glass.
In this lesson you will learn how to operate a kiln to control precisely how glass is heated, cooled and ultimately formed.
