Bio

I'm an accidental artist. What started 30 years ago because I wanted to make something cool out of an old window sash has become a passion and I enjoy exploring all kinds of new aspects of working with glass.

I own 4 of these now, September 22, 2023 5 stars
Pros
Lightweight, Portable, Low Wattage, Durable
Cons
None really. Could be even brighter would be my only suggestion.
Other Thoughts
I own 4 of these and they make up the core of my portable gallery display. I can run all 4 off my Jackery 1000 power station all day and they backlight all my pieces at shows.

Miracle Fiber, September 24, 2022 5 stars
Pros
Easy to Use Creates great texture No mess/No Fuss
Cons
Creates a texture and shows seams, so that has to be a desired results
Other Thoughts
I just started playing with this amazing materials about a month ago. Makes working with the kiln to "cook" glass so easy. Great for newbies who want to get started but don't care that one size will pickup the mat texture.

Great results so far, May 20, 2022 5 stars
Pros
Super easy to use Great results with minimal fuss
Cons
None so far
Other Thoughts
I've had this kiln for about 9 months now and just started firing it up in my studio when I got an electrical upgrade. I'm a total novice to fusing/slumping but the computer interface on this is super simple and even I could figure it out. 3 projects done and it's working great. Comes with loads of presets to tack/fuse/slump 90 and 96 COE glass.

I used one of these to make over 20 stones. With proper care, they can be used again and again. Heavy Duty plastic vs cheap stuff you get at the craft store. A+

Holds up through winter, September 22, 2021 5 stars
Pros
Ideal for 14" round mold with no measuring Sets up fast Works as described
Cons
Other Thoughts
I gave up making stepping stones for a bit because of durability issues with the stones (diamondcrete) 10 years ago. This stuff seems better and when coated after 30 days with concrete sealer, they have lasted so far through 2 winters without cracking.
