Product Description

Fireworks floral vase formers offer specially textured sides so that kiln wash or mold release adheres to the surface easily. Durable stainless steel molds can be reused many times. Measures 4-1/2" high, 3" diameter.

 First project created by Delphi artist Roy Kapp using stringers. Second and third project by artist Lisa Vogt.

Delphi Tip: Stainless steel molds require release like any other mold. Spray-on primers are fast and easy to apply, or you can use a traditional kiln wash. To use kiln wash, preheat your mold in the oven to 450°F, then apply by brushing on one even coat of wash.

Step 1 Cut a piece of glass in any wild shape or size you like. (This piece was just a leftover piece of glass from a stained glass window.) Step 2 Place a drape mold in the kiln. Since the piece of glass may run down to the shelf, it is best to have a piece of Fiber Paper under the mold. (I have used a bisque fired coffee mug for my mold. The glass will melt down around this mold so be sure to pick something were the sides go straight down or flare out, or the glass will break removing it from the mold.) Step 3 Drape a thin piece of Fiber Paper over the drape mold that is about the same size as the piece of glass. Step 4 Fire the glass at cone 017. Step 5 Wash the piece using a soft brush to remove

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks
