This special wire melt was creaatd in our kiln by heating 1250 grams of glass to 1760 degrees and having the glass dribble through the squares in some wire mess. The wire and glass rest on fire bricks about 8″ above the kiln floor. It usually takes about 12 hours until all the glass has melted through. Then we must wait until the next day for the kiln to cool down. At this point we can see what we have created. Each day is a surprise to what awaits us upon opening the lid of the kiln.
