At noon I was able to open the kiln door to find as perfect a set of glass panels as I could hope for. They’ve been cleaned up and coated with FlexTec (an anti-shatter substance) which is curing for the next 6 hours. Because we’re short on time, I’ll accelerate the normal 4 day curing time by placing them back into the kiln at 150º for 8 hours.
And in the photos below, you see the same sets in the same order with the sun behind the glass so you can see how vibrant the colors are.
They’re so much better in person! Hope you can join us at the dedication and see for yourself!! The next photos of these panels will be installed at Maryhill Museum, where you’ll also see the the fence and patio.
