This is really random. BUT! I'm a crazy ceramic addict. I made a sick looking dragon and I needed to know a couple things about Glass + Earthenware! Please be an expert or experienced at this before you answer my questions!!!Ok, so does glass change color if I fire it? Will the glass when melting, run off a flat surface? Is it a bad idea to mix a clear glaze and glass shards onto bisqueware?ERM?!?!??!?!?!? I think thats the questions I wanted answers from! THANK YOU if u know the answers, cuz i've been looking online for answers and there are no articles/links that can answer my questions =(
Melting Glass On Ceramics
sorry, not an expert but I know a bit about glass blowingglass does not change colour if it's fired, as long as the fire is clean. you can tint glas by adding chemicals to the flameI doubt that a kiln would be hot enough to get glass to "run"my advice is to just experement. play around with your ideas before you apply them to some art that you feel is important
and there was light
A glaze is a type of glass. They change colour on firing because the chemicals that cause the colour are mixed in the powder but not incorporated with the glassy glaze until firing. Glass, however, is traditionally coloured first. (There are some colours that can change as a result of a reducing or oxidising atmosphere in the kiln causing chemical reactions with the colour.)I think you'll find that most coloured window or bottle glass is not intensely coloured enough to produce more than subtle shades as a glaze.All glasses become viscous liquids on heating, which become less viscous as the temperature is increased. Different sorts of glass need different temperatures, but I think ordinary glass will behave similarly to glazes.They should mix, but as unsupervised said, you'll need to experiment.
Mmm alright, thanks! I'll experiment and I'll see what happens. Ehh I hope I don't ruin my teacher's kiln...=D
