Product Information
China Soup Bowl Mould  

Create elegant bowls with this distinctive mould.

Makes a small but quite deep bowl.

Inner Dimensions: Diameter: 17.5 cm, Height: 4.7 cm 
Outer Dimensions: Diameter: 18.9 cm, Height: 5.5 cm 
Base Dimensions: Diameter: 4.8 cm

Please note that all our moulds are hand-made and therefore the dimensions may vary slightly from those shown. We strongly recommend cutting the glass to the size measured from the actual mould rather than relying solely on the dimensions shown.

Will this mould fit in my glass kiln?

With larger moulds such as this one, your glass blank can overhang the mould by up to 1cm without any problems. Wider than this and the blank may catch on the side of the mould during slumping.

For a larger bowl, try mould 8375. 

 

Firing Schedule:

Please Read: This firing recommendation has been calculated using Bullseye Glass with a thickness of 6 mm in a Paragon GL24 kiln, and is courtesy of Bullseye Glass Co. 

Segment Rate (C/hr) Temp. Hold
1 167C 663C 1:45*

*If possible, visually confirm slump.

Troubleshooting

  • Small kilns may require the process temperature reducing. In the Hobbyfuser and HotStart Pro, reduce the top temperature from 663C to 640C. In the Firebox 14, reduce the top temperature from 663C to 620C. All kilns vary, as does glass viscosity. Testing is necessary.

  • Remove the shelf when slumping in small kilns.

  • Side firing kilns may require more time in the first ramp than top firing kilns.

  • Bubbles in slumping are caused by firing too high or holding too long at process temperature.

  • Cracked moulds or cracked glass is caused by firing too fast in the first ramp or cooling too fast.

  • Devitrification on the outside of a slumped piece is caused by firing too high or holding too long at process temperature.

All our moulds are designed for multiple use and with care should last for many firings.

This is a lovely mould that produces a deep and stable bowl. It is slightly awkward to prime but patience and thin layers are the key.
