    looks like your background is a single layer of glass .   without knowing your fusing schedule it looks like it was held at to high  a temp . for  to long.

    I agree that it looks like a single layer of glass which can cause an arch at too high a temp.  Or the slump was really deep.

     

    Please describe the set up.

    Thank you for your quick answer.

    The glass is Float 3 mm 170X370 mm. and the flower is hand painted.

    The first process for fusing the plower color was on a flat surface, heating at a rate of 300 deg per hour up to 500 C, and stay for 5 min, continue heating at the same rate up to 785 C and stay for 15 min. The results was nice color fusing with nice adges.

    The second process was on a square mold 20 mm deep. The heating process was the same as the first one, but the max temp’ was 720 C instead of 785 C. The results is the attached picture.

    Natana.

    You fired too high for slumping into the bowl.  Slumping occurs around 593 C or a little above this.  Although I don’t use float glass.
