FROM THE BOOK:
"Glass, when exposed to high temperatures, will always move, expand and contract. During the firing cycle, glass becomes soft, then viscous, and finally molten."
"To fuse glass successfully, it is important to know what is taking place inside the kiln during the firing process. To help you to control the glass during firing, it is necessary to understand the stages of glass movement by visually observing changes inside the kiln. The best source of information will be gained by opening the kiln and taking accurate notes of your observations during firing sessions."
"The adjacent information chart describes the various stages of both fusible clear glass and sheet window glass as they heat and mature to the full-fuse state."
