Wire Melt on the Go

Here is a picture of the kiln as it works its magic. The temperature now is about 1760degrees . You can see the pieces of wire with the glass on top and if you look closely you can see some of the melted glass below the very top one. On this firing, we are doing 3 smaller wire melts as an experiment to see if they will keep their round shape. We found that when all was done that the shapes were a little out of round and we will have to cut them into the circles we want and then refire to round over the edges. When we do the larger wire melts we can only do one at a time.
