What is Kilnformed Glass?

 

Kilnforming is glass that is fired (heat-processed) in a kiln at temperatures ranging from 1100-1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Melting properties of glass change at different temperature levels. Layering glass in different forms, (sheets, crushed, powders, rods, strings, enamels) and melting them in the kiln are used to create patterns, designs and images. Many works are fired multiple times to get the desired effects.  The heating and cooling process in the kiln takes many hours to complete. All work is finely polished and signed.
