What a failure !

I opened the kiln to a to a right failure this morning. I’ve had some issues with the top layer of float glass slipping during the firing process , I thought I’d cracked the problem, but not so.
glass moved in the kilnwindow glass slipped off

Float glass disaster
I have a theory ( as slippage didn’t happen until recently) that it’s caused by a coating on the glass, maybe the stay clean coating.

So it’s back to work for another go, this time I’m pre firing single pieces of glass in the hope of burning off any coating that might be on it, I’ll let you know if it works.

But I’m feeling pretty fed up this morning as I planned add decals today and deliver these light catchers tomorrow, but that won’t happen now.
