Drop Vases

These vases are formed by first fusing 2+ layers of glass (one layer or more for every 2″ of drop), then placing on a mold that lets the center of the glass sag through an opening during another run through the kiln. Timing is crucial on these – few minutes too long and you have a puddle of glass in the kiln 🙁 Baring THAT unpleasantness, the kiln is stopped and vented to drop the temperature just enough to stop the glass from stretching/falling further. Then cooling occurs over 6-8 hours to let the glass temper and “rest” for long term stability.
