Well, i guess that must be the answer. thanks for helping.
are all copper earring glasses reactive with silver? I was actually looking for that information and didn’t fine it on the bullseye site.
cheers and happy new year!

Ah, here is a clue. I had put a small piece of French vanilla with fine silver wire, as an experiment. I recall that silver in a kiln cam affect other glass pieces in the same firing. Does it make sense that the silver could have caused this problem, even though the glass that got the stain (bullseye jade green, 145) is copper bearing but as far as I know doesn’t react with silver?

It was flat when I put it on the mold, my purpose was to prevent devit as it was slumping; I took it up to a higher temperature than usual in a slump to get a better fire polish (I realize I was taking a shortcut- and I see that’s not a good idea!)
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate your thoughts.

No, it’s all over most of the border of dark green glass, which is almost an inch wide on all four sides. There is no reaction on the bottom of the glass. It’s rough in texture, I’ve never seen anything like it in my 8 years fusing glass.

There is a glass studio in Mt Rainier Maryland, the Washington Glass School, that has combined fused glass with neon lighting. you can look them up at Washingtonglassschool.com.
