TechNotes 2: The Vitrigraph Kiln
Did you know you can make your own stringer for use in kiln-glass work? Using this technique you can create your own unique curved forms you can’t find elsewhere.
This TechNote describes the vitrigraph equipment and processes developed at Bullseye in the early 1990s by Narcissus Quagliata and Rudi Gritsch, in the process creating a whole new vocabulary for fused glass. We’ll show you how to transform a Paragon Caldera Kiln into a vitrigraph kiln, and how to safely hand-pull stringers for designing, drawing, and painting with glass.
