Chris' Glass by Design's Profile


I became interested in fused glass about 1 year ago. I took some instruction to learn the basics. I used to do stained glass several years ago. I have had such fun learning about fused glass and all of the different techniques that can be done with fusing! The possibilities seem endless! I want to try all of them at once but have had to make myself work with just a few ideas. I hope to learn more to perfect my skills to make my work better with each project. Learning is such fun! I have sold several of my pieces and some have been made as gifts. I plan to sell more in the future.

Thanks for the info on the microwave kiln. I have used it with the glass turntable in & also set the kiln on posts. I was afraid that if I set the kiln directly on the turntable that it might crack it if it got too hot. Seems to work quite well! Having a lot of fun with it!

None of the instructions for the microwave kilns say if you use the moveable turntable or take it out. I have kiln posts that I can put the kiln on but do I use the turntable or not? One picture that I saw shows the kiln placed in the microwave on the glass shelf with posts under it but I don't know if the turntable is allowed to turn or should it remain stationary? I can remove the glass shelf and put the posts directly on the bottom of the microwave but I didn't know if that's the best way to use it.
