This is a raggedy cut piece of transparent “stained glass” that came this way in the box gifted to me by my friend Tracey. I decided to just put it in the kiln on the newly acquired slump mold and see what happened. Those little holes in the bottom of the mold come that way from the supplier. Lucky for me, there was a nice smooth coat of kiln wash already applied.
This is pretty cool for a first time dry run. There are a few sharp edges, should have ground them before firing. I smoothed then with a sanding block. As expected, that left scratch marks. Fire polishing will resolve that, but I’m not ready to do that just yet. I have some ideas about this becoming a 3D sculptural piece. Made a few sketches in my firing log for future reference
