Events and Contests
I know it’s only March, however, I can’t help but think about summer. Maybe that’s because here in Michigan the snow seems never-ending and just thinking about summer makes me feel better. Hard to say. Anyway, have you given your summer much thought yet? We have a genius idea! Two words. Glass Getaway! Sounds amazing right? Okay, this is new so let me explain. As some of you may know we have 3 classrooms, however, we don’t typically run classes every day but that is about to change. June 22nd - June 30th we will have an event, class, or demo running in every classroom. For a total of 4 stained glass, 9 fusing, 6 flameworking, 3 mosaic classes and more. Now let’s talk details, shall we? June 22nd we kick off Glass Getaway with our FREE Fusing Forum Event.

Finding your perfect match can seem daunting, let us help play matchmaker by highlighting the traits that will help you fall head-over-heels for a kiln – then stay happy together for years to come. Here’s the short list of questions to ask when you’re looking for that special kiln. What size of projects do you want to make? (Leave room to grow together!) How much space do you have for a kiln? What are the electric requirements (plug type, wire gauge)? What features are important to you? What is your budget? Let’s face it – sometimes size really does matter. We’re talking kilns here people! It’s important to know where your kiln will fit in your life, creative pursuits, and space. The heartbreak of outgrowing your kiln is something we see all too often. While it’s hard to know exactly what you’ll be into a year or more down the road, it’s best to consider all your options now. Do you see something that excites you?

@Yes, you can fuse glass to itself. As long as you are fusing the same sheet together. If you are wanting to fuse 2 separate pieces we don't recommend that. Here is a link to our fusing tip sheet. https://www.delphiglass.com/page/knowledgeBaseView?KBItemID=90

@Lynn.mueller You can use your current fusing schedule and add in a segment that will hold once you reach 1225* F. For small pieces such as your 4" square we suggest holding at a minimum of 30 minutes. For larger pieces (12" or up) we recommend holding for 60 minutes. For your 10" piece you could meet in the middle at 45 minutes. You can't over hold a piece so you could always holder longer if you prefer.
