Now for the tricky (but not difficult) part: folding the top of the glass over to make a channel for the cord or chain – without using a torch or reaching into the kiln while it is hot.

We then flip the glass over bend the glass like this in a second slump:
How does that work? The next page will show you the setup for the first bend.
