Will this mould fit in my glass kiln?

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*
2 999 482C 1:00
3 56C 371C :00

*If possible, visually confirm slump.


  • 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.

Enjoyed this mould but took a while to get temperature right T even slump.
I have a Firebox 14 and tried the recommended scedule. After many tries I found 650 a good top temp

This makes lovely shape bowls. Of all of our moulds we've found this the trickiest to use, though after some great advice from Warm Glass about setting up the suggested programme on this page, we are now using it successfully.

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.
