Blue and Green Fusings

I did some fused tiles for engraving/sandblasting images into. They were all Spectrum System 96 sheet glass, two with teal blue, and two with forest green. All of them were three sheets thick, two coloured sheets on the bottom, and one white on top.

They were fired in Kiln #2 on the Following Schedule:

1. 5:00 – 590
2. 5:30 – 660
3. 6:00 @ 660
4. 7:00 – 710
5. 7:01 – 800
6. 7:31 @ 800
7. 7:32 – 540
8. 8:00 – 513
9. 9:30 @ 513
10. 13:30 – 427
11. 19:30 – 50

They were fired on September 28th, 2009, and unloaded on September 30th, 2009.

The top shelves fused fully, and smoothly. but the bottom two shelves had some bubbles. These aren’t serious, I will be able to work them out though the coldworking process.
