Slumping Gone Wrong

I spent an entire Saturday prepping glass and plaster/silica cores to be slumped into flowery vases / candle holders. I checked on them after an hour and found everything broken or knocked over.

The issue? I didn't think about drying out the plaster cores, so they shocked the glass. Otherwise it might have worked!

Kiln 5 Program

1) 3:10 ↑ 685º
2) 3:30 @ 685º
3) 3:31 516º
4) 4:31 @ 516º
5) 6:31 371º
6) 10:00 50º

I put this glass into an Aperture Pour here!
