Well, Crap

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.three square fusing projects fused together

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.

I used tile nippers to get the fracture away from the black pieces, and then scored and broke the black ones back into 2 pieces. I used a my grinder to smooth the edges, and then popped the fracture into the kiln to slump, and the two black pieces in to fire polish. Let’s hope they all turn out.

  2. I thought the black ones came out pretty nice; they have a galaxy feel to them which I’m so crazy about right now. Sadly, they’re stuck to each other ):

  3. I managed to cut them apart, and they’re waiting patiently for me to get kiln space to slump them into little bowls.
