Kiln forming

Kiln forming is the process of shaping or fusing glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Kiln forming can include glass fusingglass slumpingkiln casting and printmaking onto glass.

When glass is heated in a kiln, it becomes soft and almost honey-like. Gravity takes hold of the molten glass, the molten glass fills the space in which it’s contained and fuses with any other compatible glass. While cooling, the glass will resume its solid state in a new shape.

The origins of glass forming date back to around 2000 BC. The Egyptians and Romans were some of the most prolific glass formers.
