Oil Lamps

To make an oil lamp, two 6x6 pieces of colored glass are cut, cleaned and stacked together. At the same time, two 5 inch circles are cut, cleaned and a 4 inch circle of sheet copper is cut and placed between the two pieces of clear glass.

Both sets are placed into a kiln heated up to1450f where the glass becomes molten and fuses together to make two individual pieces of glass.

The 6x6 inch piece of glass is placed into a mold and taken to 1250f, the glass becomes elastic and

gravity pulls the glass into the mold. We call this process slumping. The 5 inch round piece has a hole drilled into the center for the wick.

All totaled the glass spends about 24 hours in the kilns.

Expect variations in color & size. Custom colors and sizing available.
