Blue Fused Glass Bowl with Hand Pulled Stinger

17" Fused glass bowl with white stringer hand pulled from a vitrograph kiln. A vitrograph is basically a small kiln that is raised in the air with a hole in the bottom. A ceramic container also with a hole in the bottom is placed inside the kiln and filled with glass. When the vitrograph is fired the glass begins to fall out of the holes. It can be controlled by the temperature, as well as manipulated by hand. It is advisable to use gloves of course and or tools rather than your hand since the glass is over 1700 degrees.

Below are some picture of our vitrograph kiln firing, and some mixed color hot parts being pulled. These were a little thicker because the temperature in the kiln was lower so the glass moved slower.
