Every once in awhile, I need to go to the doctor or something else that takes me away from my kiln for a day. Yesterday was one of those days… I had a doctor’s appointment. Now, remember we live one hour away from all these luxuries, so it pretty much cancels any kiln projects for that day. Remember again, that I have a wonderfully time consuming manual kiln, rather that a “turn it on and leave it till it’s done” kiln with a controller 🙂
My husband really loves the art of fusing glass bottles, such as Grey Goose Vodka bottles and Belvedere Vodka bottles. These are the ones that have a design all around the bottle and you can even see a design through a clear part in front of the bottle. I have some pictures in some of my previous posts.
So, I helped him with the kiln paper under the bottle and helped him center the bottle and then turned it on. I added three glass pendants to fuse right along with the bottle. I gave him the directions I use to fuse a bottle with my kiln. Don’t get me wrong — he has helped me before with different parts of the firing, usually the end. However, I have never left him alone to do the whole fusing.
He did a wonderful job and I didn’t get any panic calls on my cell phone 😀
I think I will let him do it more often.
