Physics of Murinni Making with Zoi Sandy
Date: Friday, August 8th 9:00 - 5:00
Location: Classroom 2
The use of murrini can add a complex facet to any warm glass work. Our discussion
begins with choices available for crucibles, options for lining the crucible and a dem-
onstration of situating the crucible in the kiln for a stable pot that heats more evenly.
Multiple pattern setups for loading the crucible to create a variety of murrini, control-
ling the cane flow for consistent size and tools for harvesting the murrini will be cov-
ered. You will come away with a better understanding of the physics of the glass flow
so that you can visualize what will happen when the pot begins to flow. Firing sched-
ules will also be included.
