Look Mom No Mold

Volume 28 - Issue 1

Techniques for creating fused and slumped glass pieces without the use of a mold. High-temperature wire is used to help shape and slump two 8" screen-printed circles of glass. A 3/8" ring of the high-temperature wire is placed in between the layers of glass at each of 4 compass points. After full-fusing the glass, the disk is hung by hooking a wire to the ring and hanging it over a square drop-out mold or kiln posts.
