Topic Firing

Considerations for Multiple Firings L130

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.

Kilncarved Billet L121

In this lesson, you'll learn about design, setup, and firing considerations for kilncarving billets, as well as some variations.

Lost Wax Kilncasting L074

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 L055

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.

Kilncarving L045

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.

Why Did It Break? L042

This lesson covers two of the most common causes of a piece breaking: thermal shock and improper annealing.

Open-Faced Kilncasting L026

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.

Firing: Basic Applications L023

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.

Heatwork and Frit L017

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.

Kiln Operation L012

In this lesson you will learn how to operate a kiln to control precisely how glass is heated, cooled and ultimately formed.
