Product Information
Large Spherical Bowl  

Create a beautifully spherical piece with this round-based mould. Rubber pads can be attached to the base of the finished piece if more stability is required, or it can be secured when displayed using Museum Gel.

Size: 40cm diameter x 8cm deep. Ideal if you have a large 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.

Will this mould fit in my glass kiln?

For a smaller size in the same style, try mould 8134.

Troubleshooting

  • 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.

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.

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