Step 3: Understanding the Double Slump

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.

The secret is slumping the glass not once, but twice!

The first slump – which is done face down hanging off the end of a piece of fiber-board – bends the glass like this:

How does that work? The next page will show you the setup for the first bend.
