Product Information
Fluente Square Former - Stainless Steel

This former is great for making decorative fused glass dishes and vases, made of high quality stainless steel for durability with high resistance to heat and corrosion, guaranteed to last multiple uses and firings.    

Mould dimension: 15.3cm high, 15.3cm wide at top and 15.3cm wide on base (approx).

We recommend using Boron Nitride spray with this mould.

We have tested this mould in the studio and recommend slumping with single layer 3mm thick projects to get the best shape, using the following firing schedule:

Segment Rate (C/hr) Temp. Hold
1 167C 650C 0:30
2 999 482C 1:00
3 56C 371C 0:00
 

Will this mould fit in my kiln?

Important: This former will only fit in kilns with an internal height greater than 25cm. It may need to be placed directly on the base of the kiln not on props to ensure the glass is at least 6cm from the roof of the kiln. If the mould is less than 10cm from the roof of the kiln, the glass will also be quite close to the elements making it vulnerable to thermal shock therefore we would recommend slowing down the initial ramp rate to 100°c/hr and only slumping 3mm thick pieces on it (this thickness works better with drape moulds anyway). 

As an alternative for creating vases, try our range of drop out rings, or the Mini Lamp Bender Mould.

I ordered this one a few weeks ago and have been having fun trying it out. My best results are with just a single sheet of glass (3mm) of 30x30cm. This results in a very nice 'vase' with artistic folds (if I were allowed to upload a picture I could show you my result) which will hold about 1,5 liters.
When trying it out with prefused glass of over 6 mm thickness it drapes more evenly around the mould.
