@comments8 I have a large Skutt glass kiln and am using a slow fuse program. do you suggest I add more time to the heating segment? It happens to both small 4x4'" pieces and 10x10" pieces. And then is there anything I can do to fix it?

@Lynn.mueller When working in the microwave kiln or any kiln for that matter. When glass gets hot quickly it can trap air. In a standard kiln we do what's called a bubble squeeze however for the microwave kiln since you can't program it you could try running it for a short time then adding more until you achieve the desired fuse vs doing 1 quick firing. This should allow air to get out before the edges heat and seal it in.
