Hey Joe-
I took the class and use the technique.
You dont roll it up out of the oven, you preheat
it and then get it hot enough to roll in the glory. hot enough to roll is hot enough to run
and it would stick to your ferro and or bleed if held in a kiln for any time at rolling temperature.

I've thought about trying to roll up out of the oven but I think that there's no really good reason for doing it that way that I can figure.

You can load your fused panels into your annealer
and transfer them to the glory from there.
Fuse them in any oven that will go to 1600.

It's not a cheap way to make glass. fusable sheets are expensive and the labor is long.

It's a really cool technique though.... I don't
think you can do somthing like this very easy
with kugler.
