These are the pics. of pieces that I fused in micro-wave kiln about 20 years ago...

Now it is official..I have my web-site up and running
although I have to finish it off and add some stuff ...that will be a challenge for me
My daughter Stacy helped me..she is the techno whiz around here..
There is not enough time to do everything...
My kiln stopped working...looks like I need a new Controller..The solution to fix it is not easy (parts have to come from Toronto) or cheap.. but I figure I will up-grade to a digital control..
I have ordered a new mini-kiln that uses the micro-wave to fuse glass..only can do one large cabochon at a time..but it will be a good teaching tool as I will be able to use it at Studio 203.
I used one of these about 20 years ago and then they disappeared off the market... I still have the pieces that I fused.. will post some pics. of them....Fusing is really "HOT" right now...no pun intended..
