There are many reasons you might need to fire a project multiple times to achieve a desired result. Some of the most common include:
- Fusing and slumping in two separate firings
- Firing components that will later be incorporated into a larger or thicker work
- Adding layers of texture to a work by tack fusing components over multiple firings
In this lesson, we will cover strategies for successfully reheating pre-fired work, the cumulative effect of heatwork on glass, and how to anneal works that have been fired multiple times. We will also look at some special considerations.
