Glassmaking: Morganica (Cynthia Morgan) demonstrates the technical and creative challenges of making art using glass through fused glass, coldworking, and experimentation. Primarily focused on the casting of glass, including pate de verre and reservoir casting, she also discusses less-used kinformed glass techniques such as tack-fusing, kilncarving, and pattern-bar development.
Thickness isn't the only consideration when engineering a project in kilnformed (fused) glass. The shape of the object can be important, too. If you're making a long, thin panel that's rather thick, such as the transom window I recently made for my parents' bathroom, you'll need to understand how the glass moves and responds throughout the firing cycle. I don't [...]
