Technique description

Kiln formed glass (or warm glass) refers to any glass produced through the process of heating within a kiln. This is differentiated from hot glass which is produced at much higher temperatures in a furnace and cold glass working techniques such as leaded lights, glass cutting, etched glass, etc.

Curved glass slumping, fused glass, and cast glass all fall under the category of kiln formed and are produced with the kiln at various temperature levels.
