Suspended Slumping Project

Postby mike » Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:01 pm

I have a small suspended slumping project (think old Volkswagon van vista windows of different size & radius) using tempered safety glass. Looking for glass artist who has equipment to help me out. 2 pieces initially, likely to be further demand for several more sets.

I might be wrong, but once you get the glass hot enough to slump it will no longer be tempered. So if you need to end up with tempered glass, that needs to be done after you have formed it (or at least at the end of the forming process). I would google "temper curved glass" and see what that gets.
