Go To: Subject: Re: GLASS SCULPTURES
Hi there, currently this forum does not allow upload of images, but you can use one of many free image hosting sites.. photobucket, flickr, image shack, smugmug, etc.. then post a link to the URL in this forum, which will make the image appear here.

I don't know the artist you are referring to, but hope the image posting info helps.

Hi,
Any luck with the threads? My suggestion would be the hotter the bubble, the thinner the threads.

Go To: Subject: GLASS SCULPTURES
Hi ,
Im new here so please don't be too hard if this is in the wrong post area. I bought a beautiful glass sculpture of a Pelican (beauty is in the eye of the beholder). It was recently damaged and my wife is quite upset, the shop in St Paul de Vence France has since changed thoughnI do remember seeing quite a few of this artists items around Europe. I cannot find the details of the piece and need some help tracking down the artist to make another purchase. all help is most welcome .
OK how do i upload a photo ??

Go To: Subject: Threads in Glass Balls
I have been trying to put glass threads in ornaments. Not very successful. So i have a few questions like What should the bubble Iook like before the are put in. Should the Jackline go in before or after the threads. I also have been using calipers to put them in, should i use something else?
Thanks for any help.

What are the technical reasons you like the EC crucible better than the Guadaloupe ones?

Thanks,

Thanks so much for your well considered input.

Being new to the studio building experience I am relying heavily on the community of gaffers (like you) with real world experience.

I clearly have some more thinking to do.

Hello,

Couple of things.
I like the 80# Engineered Ceramics Crucibles... they are basically the same dimensions, but cheaper and better.


Look for model# 5564

For elements, that size melter seems to work good with 11 or 12 ga. Kanthal A-1 elements.

I ran 3 banks of 3 elements ea. at 4.7ohms (each element) in a series/parallel circuit. In this configuration each bank was 14.1 ohms. With using a 240 volt line, if one of the elements went out, which would cause one of the 3 banks of elements to go out, my melter would still work well enough until I could shut it down for repair.


Regarding question #2, I haven't used those products much actually, but I'm guessing they will not be ideal for hot face applications at the 2000F+ level... the main reason being safety, as duraboard is a fibrous product.. see the
MSDS info for more info.

Why not use a light castable for your lid?

I do like Skamol Board for various solutions:
