Creating a low-relief glass sculpture often requires a complex plaster-silica mold-making process. Kilncarving is a simple casting process that uses ceramic fiber paper and the right amount of heat to achieve similar results.

In our Kilncarving lesson, we demonstrated how the process works with sheet glass. In this lesson, you'll learn about design, setup, and firing considerations for kilncarving billets. We’ll also cover some variations on the technique.
