The Kiln

This is the very first batch of pendants that I am about to fuse in this brand new Evenheat Hot Shot Kiln. Hopefully they will come out beautifully. I'm intimidated by the size of this kiln and all of the settings, so we shall see.

Fused Glass

I started making fused glass pendants. It's like putting together a little puzzle with glass, of course you have to create that puzzle first, cut all the pieces, fit them together so there are no gaps, glue them down, then fire them in the kiln. There are a few from my 1st batch of 5. Two of them were quickly scooped up at my show yesterday. I am now firing three new ones in my own kiln at home, I've never fused glass in it so this is a new experience.
