A fused glass aperture pour produces a multi colored fusing glass slab which can be cut and used in jewelry and other art objects
Also known as a pot melt an aperture pour can produce a wide range of colors and shapes.
Pots And Molds
Scrap pieces are placed in a terra cotta, ceramic or stainless steel pot, which is then placed on kiln furniture in the glass fusing kiln, and melted, the glass flowing from the hole in the bottom of the pot.
Molds, terra cotta/ceramic saucers, stainless steelrings/squares, a kiln washed shelf or a pattern bar mold can be used to catch the glass.
A variation of this is a screen melt where the scrap is placed on top of a wire screen in the kiln and the melted scrap drops through the screen to create an original pattern.
