I'm starting a new thread on firing glass on clay. This subject has been brought up on this thread and I thought if we are going to discuss this further we could do so here to avoid digressing too far from the OP's original question in the above thread. I'm going to start this thread off with this post from @Chilly : "It terrifies me that you sell stuff that you know splinters. I really don't understand using glass with clay. To me it's like putting diesel in your petrol-engine car, just because they both came from crude oil."
Hey all, using white cone 6 stoneware- B-mix 5 WC-401 I have been making some little 8-inch coral wall hangings- I throw bowled plates and fill it in with coral looking bits. They dry slowly and they usually make it through the glaze firing fine but then I like to add some glass (I bought some stained glass and mosaic glass pebbles- photos attached (the ones I bought are different colors but same type)) and put them in for another glaze firing and then they often crack at this step. I try not to use too much glass since I know that can cause cracking and often they just crack a little
