In Topic: Fusing Glass With Clay

Today, 08:16 AM

Could it be possible to raku a pot, take it out and fuse some molten glass to it like when blowing glass?

 

Is it just the different coe between the two ceramics that produce the cracking or is there something else helping it become stressed?


In Topic: How Thin Does Ceramic Need To Be For Light To Pass Through It?

11 April 2014 - 09:15 AM

I have never tried any light tests. My guess of 1cm was just what I thought could be maximum to let some light through.

 

I was kind of joking about the wavelength of light  :) so are you actually using some uv bulbs?

 

The best place to start is by finding a porcelain that you can get some light through and find out what thickness is the best. Slip casting is a good process for an even thickness but it is hard to make good moulds. Really depends on what you final shape is going to be. There is rarely one way to make something.


In Topic: Temperature Most Likely To Explode?

When things have blown up on me they make much more of a pop sound than a snap sound.

 

Sometimes I mistake my relays switching for other sounds.

I have only every heard things exploding between 150-250degC in my kiln.


In Topic: Surface-Mixed Burner.

I am not really sure what I am on about  :blink:

 

I was doing my usual late night binge on youtube and came across this video and fell slightly inlove with that flame. It looked like they were used for glass but thought I would start a little discussion and see if other people had come into contact with this type of burner.

 

Here is the video
