    I have tried to include a picture not sure weather it will work or not. Yesterday I slumped a 3/8 ” screen melt mostly brown I used a consertive fireing schedule of 200/1000/30  50/1150/30  about 10 minutes into the slump the glass split. I know from what I have read here that the probable cause  is probably not enough heat in the glass, thus causing it  to split . Are there any other factors that might have caused the split? I am going to try and repair the piece, although I dont have much hope it will end up as I orginialy wanted. split glass

    Now you have experience to show that what is slow for other glass is not so for pot melts.  I suggest slower rise,; maybe half the one you used.  10mm is more than 3 layers thick, so slow rises are needed and even more caution on glass subjected to high temperatures
