This comprehensive guide introduces a new approach to understanding and designing firing schedules. It breaks them into three stages: initial heating through the brittle zone; heating to process temperature within the ductile zone; and annealing back to room temperature through the brittle zone. Learning how to implement this approach leads to improved results, reduced glass breakage, and the ability to develop and/or revise firing schedules to fit your specific needs.
The information provided in the book will give you an understanding of:
- The physical and chemical properties of glass
- How glass behaves when heated in a kiln
- The critical observations to be made at each stage of the firing cycle
- How to design component firing schedules and combine them into overall schedules
