The Set-up For the Drop Ring Bowl.

This is how the glass and the drop ring mold is set up in the kiln.  I propped the ring up on 1″ posts.  This is a fun project to watch as the glass starts to drop.  The glass drops like a bubble.   The glass needs to be watched closely, so it doesn’t drop too far and the bottom comes out lopsided.  I try to make sure that enough of the glass touches the kiln shelf, so the bowl will sit nicely on a table.

 I am working on a tutorial to make this bowl.  Look for it on my website: www.mastersglassart.com
