Firing Schedules for Glass - The Kiln Companion
Firing Schedules for Glass provides firing schedules in the form required for computers and digital kiln controllers, but the information is also extremely relevant for "manual" firings. By taking the guesswork out of glass firing and making it easier to select the right schedule for any circumstance, this book is an invaluable tool for the glass artist.
The book is divided into 3 parts. The first contains the fundamentals of glass firing, essential for effective use of the schedules. The schedules themselves constitute the second part of the book, and the third features technical data to facilitate studio glass understanding and practice.
   Contains 100 pages of schedules both in Celsius and Fahrenheit
   Provides advice on heating rates as well as cooling and annealing
   Largely removes the task of calculating schedules for glass types, thickness, time and purpose
   Relates schedules to kiln types and controllers
   Includes data relevant to glassblowing and lampworking
   Contains 100 pages of technical data, glossary, extensive bibliography and index.
Reduced for the Web from the blurb to Firing Schedules for Glass, $A95
