Yet another test
Adaptions from the previous firing
Less height again on the dam lining
Longer soak at top temperature
The glass placed in dam pre-firing has been cut up smaller to allow glass falling through melt plate more variation in depth
Test 1 and 2 combined make the appropriate height for this piece so used them to work out an exact weight in glass.
Due to quantity of glass, could probably have done with a bit longer at top temp to get rid of final spike and bubbles.
Next tests will include carvings to see how the different elements are affected
