A glass pot melt occurs when art glass scraps are melted in a container at high temperature in a glass fusing kiln and the fusing glass flows in colored swirls from the bottom of the container.
Fusing glass pot melts, also known as aperture pours, produce a multi-colored swirl of colors that can be cut and used in other glass art fusing projects.
Scrap fusing glass is 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 & Pots
Molds, terra cotta/ceramic saucers, stainless steel rings/squares or a kiln washed shelf can be used to catch the glass.
Fusing glass pot melt patterns can be varied by changing the hole shape in the pot or by having a number of holes in the bottom of the pot.
