Awwwww you guys are so nice! Thank you for all the kind words. Smiley

What kind of kiln do you need to make something like this? I've got a kiln that fires up to 1300 degrees Celsius (I think), I've used it for pottery in the past... would that be ok for glasswork, too, or do you need a special kiln for that?

I think 1300 degrees C is about a billion degrees F, so your kiln should work for glass, since glass fires much lower than pottery (COE 90 fuses around 1500 F).

That is gorgeous! Do you work with the torch before you fire the piece in your kiln or after...or both?

Torch first - I just fire it in the kiln to flatten it out. Probably if I was better with the torch I wouldn't need to do that, but for now I'm cheating with the kiln. Smiley
