It involved laying pieces of metal pipe  in the kiln, coated with kiln wash.  They were of a small (3/4″?  1/2″?) diameter, and spaced about an inch apart.  Do NOT use galvanized pipe, because it will emit toxic fumes. I’m not sure what size pipe is available.  I’m thinking you could also use copper tubing from the plumbing department, but it would need to be kiln washed.

I don’t have a firing schedule, but it looks like you could use a slump schedule with a fast ramp.

This makes s-shaped pieces with the width of glass you want to weave…1/2″?  You then arrange them (see the picture), and stick a straight piece of glass through the openings…
