DAM/WIREMELT test 4

Updated: Aug 23, 2019

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
