FAQ/Answer

How fast can you fire small glass pendants?

Small glass projects such as a 3/4" x 1 1/2" pendant can ordinarily be fired as fast as the kiln will go and without controlled cooling through the annealing range. For instance, Paragon's small QuikFire will reach 1000 degrees F in five minutes. That kiln fires the piece so quickly that you can hold the finished, completely cooled piece in your hand an hour after you begin the firing. The smaller and thinner the glass, the less annealing time needed.

Long, slow firing schedules are designed for thick glass such as large plates. This is especially true for pieces that have already been fused and are being fired a second time for slumping. Glass layers that are fused together require a slower firing than separate layers of the same size glass.
