I’ve been trying to catch up on older things I’ve done, like my first fused glass class, and my second, but I’m taking a break from that for just a minute. I still have a glass beads post, and other things, but I wanted to show my “Oh, crap” moment from this morning.
I overloaded my kiln, and some pieces moved more than others. So, when I opened it this morning, I found this. The other things, which were 4 of the smaller squares, and one more fractured square, were all all happy and fused, but not to each other.
If you know me on Facebook, then you know I’ve recently acquired a kiln, and set up shop, creating fused glass at home. It’s a Paragon benchtop kiln. I don’t have a picture of it yet, but that link will take you to a similar kiln, although mine doesn’t have elements in the top.
I hate to disappoint, but this isn’t about my first fusing in my new kiln. That will come later.
This is about a class I took in March at Aquila Glass School. It’s called Fused Glass 2: Squares and Rectangles, and follows the Intro To Fusing class I took in January. I had to wait over a month because I needed a class that was scheduled on a Saturday, since it’s my only guaranteed day off. I was pretty excited when I went.
