We opened Helios, our fused glass teaching studio, in 2007. Since then, we’ve fired over 20,000 square feet of kiln shelves – all loaded with projects completed by hundreds of different people. When you fire that much glass, you learn a lot about what can go wrong. You also learn how to prevent it. Today, many months go by at Helios without a single fusing “disaster.”
We’ve gathered the most important things we’ve learned here. This ebook covers the most common challenges that fused glass artists and enthusiasts face including breaks, bubbles, surface issues, color problems, and more. We show you how to figure out what went wrong and why – and then we show you how to stop it from happening again.
Read this ebook from cover-to-cover and it will pay for itself over and over again by helping you avoid wasted time and wasted glass.
