Slumping a cone bowl

Postby rorgren » Wed May 25, 2016 11:36 am

I slump fired a small cone bowl following the schedule provided by Bullseye, but the slump was not deep enough. The piece is streaky glass covered with opaline, 6mm total thickness. How should I modify my next attempt? More time at some point in the schedule? More heat?

It would help if you would post the schedule you used. Also, did you check that the bowl slumped enough at the end of your process soak? You can always lengthen that segment.

You can slump the bowl again. It might just need another firing to acquire enough time at process temperature. The second firing might get it the rest of the way there!
