Kiln shelves prepared with glass work to go in the kiln

7 July 2021

Pieces of glass cut ready create pendants on the 2 kiln shelves.  The initial firing takes about 18 hours.  Some pieces are being re-fired for a second time.  Note the flowers on the far shelf are tiny individual shards of glass made into a flower
