Glass slumping is when art glass is placed over a glass mold and placed in a kiln. When the temperature is hot enough, the glass will soften and then 'slump' into the mold.

 

Choosing from a variety of molds - bowls, square dishes, sushi dishware etc - students will design their project. After adding cut glass choices, glass frit, and stringer embellishments, students will prep the piece for a flat firing. Day 1 ends with pieces being placed in the kiln for firing overnight. On Day 2, students excitedly remove creations from the kiln. There follows a discussion of how and why the glass fired as it did. Day 2 ends with glass pieces being placed on their respective molds and set in the kiln for the final slumping firing.

 

Finished pieces can be picked up at our studios the following week or be sent by parcel post for those students who have come some distance for this class.
