Does anyone have any ideas? Please leave a comment if you do!
This is the vase I made with the drop ring mold. It turned out really cool, except for the rim. As the kiln was fired up and the glass got soft, I noticed that part of the rim was curling up and then in. I have no idea what happened.
I did notice that the rim width is narrower than as the rest of the rim, meaning that I didn’t center the glass over the mold. Maybe that is what happened.
I really love how the vase turned out. The yellow glass lace was an oval, so it made an interesting impression on the vase. I think I will try to cut off the rim, so I can salvage the vase.
Here is a picture of the vase turned upside down:
I love using the drop ring mold, because it is so versatile. I can make a shallow or deep bowl or a taller vase. How deep you want the glass to drop depends on how much you elevate the drop ring with kiln furniture.
