Curved glass slumping

  Back to sample library

Technique description

Curved glass slumping is the technique of reshaping glass in a kiln. This is achieved by placing the glass over a mould and heating the glass until it reaches a flexible state.  At this point, gravity will cause the glass to slump down into the mould and assume its new shape.
