hello from the midwest and a couple of new(er) glass fusing nuts.
we discovered our love for this about a year or so ago and have been trying a ton of different things with glass.
we have been doing a lot of bottle slumping lately as we seem to have a ton of freinds who enjoy drinking wine.
now we are thinking about trying our hand at making our own molds for this and would like to know if anyone out there has fired ceramics in their glass kiln?
i have several molds ready to be fired and am trying to come up with a firing schedule.
any help with this? i have done a search and unless i am using the wrong wording, i have not found anything.
thanx in advance for any and all help.
I’m not a potter but my understanding is that even low-fire clay doesn’t begin to sinter (permanently change to a hard material) until above 1700F. That happens to be where most glass kilns top out.
I’ve made some clay slumping molds in my glass kiln – but they are much more fragile than fully fired bisque.
