Small Floral Vase Former

Small Floral Vase Former

Item# 425721
small vase former, September 11, 2022 4 stars
Pros
Easy to figure out how to set it up
Cons
Making sure the kiln paper covers completely. After firing, there was what look like it had been burned, eventhough there was no glass touching the mold.
Other Thoughts
I was not happy with the final results after slumping. It looked really cool, but the glass strips melted all the way down to the kiln shelf. Fortunately, I put kiln wash on the shelf. I checked to see if I didn't use the same slumping schedule as I usually have, and I did. It ended up being a really cool piece, but not what I wanted to happen. And that was a disappointment.
