Firing Schedules for Glass - The Kiln Companion Firing Schedules for Glass provides firing schedules in the form required for computers and digital kiln controllers, but the information is also extremely relevant for 'manual' firings. By taking the guesswork out of glass firing and making it easier to select the right schedule for any circumstance, this book is an invaluable aid for the glass artist.
The book is divided into three parts. The first contains the fundamentals of glass firing, essential for effective use of the schedules. The schedules themselves constitute the second part of the book, and the third features technical data to facilitate studio glass understanding and practice.
