Bio

I have been in love with glass for years. I experimented with fusing and made every mistake in the book and then some. I see that no matter how much experience I have, I am still learning. I have been teaching a fusing class for two years now, and I am so excited to share this art with others. And, I am so proud of the beautiful things they make.

I would really like to try this glass blowing ornament. I am afraid I will never get the hang of it. How did you learn?

I can't really tell if I need to spray my molds each time I fire them. Better safe than sorry.

Gosh, my very ancient tool looks and works like new. I was nearly gonna replace it, now I have a "new" pliers for a few dollars.
Cons
You have to stretch them a little, but they will fit.
Other Thoughts
Happy to have this item available.

I should have referred to a specific problem.  My reply, #11, has to do with your work not releasing from a ceramic slumping mold.  It works with a stainless steel mold, too.

Please accept this as a reply for problem #1.

When that happenes to me,  I immerse the entire thing, mold and glass, into water.  All the way in.  Cool it first, of course.  After a little while, the glass can be removed.  It has worked out this way every time.  Good luck.
