It’s been so go-go, that I was not surprised to find my kiln took a dive when I got to the studio to check my new glass wing slump sample. There is a strange phenomena I experience as a glass artist which I’ve heard other glass casters experience as well. The phenomena is this strange interrelatedness/telekinesis that happens when things are running amiss in the process. I stood there with this odd sensation after programming my controller that this firing didnt feel right. Sure enough, come back in the morning and something had blown… no power to the elements! oofta!!! It wasn’t the first time my intuition kicked up regarding a firing. I have to joke and say that I implicitly believe in a kiln god. That as a kilnform glass artist I’m am heavily reliant on the mercy of said kiln god. Fortunately the kiln crashing actually supplied me with a much needed stopping break. I’ve needed the reason to stop pushing myself so hard! so in the end the universe is strangely provisional!
