Thank you. That is good to know.

As far as clever: You would not be able to battutto the bottom of the vessel with that foot already in place. You physically could not get the grinding wheel towards the bottom of the vessel the foot would be in the way.

I think we are all on the same page. That isn't some crazy flared flat faced punty but actually a blown foot added after the battutto.

Sky, that's a good catch that the punty was also the foot. I had not noticed that until you mentioned it. A lot of Mark's work is sculptural I had gotten confused looking at the closed top and had "vase" in my mind. Good eye!

Well excuse my ignorance but I posted kiln schedules that I've successfully worked with in response to the OP. "Anybody have some suggested firing schedules for subtly fire polishing glass in the kiln?"

I actually thought that the chart would be a fun starting point for experimentation. Most comparable charts I've seen have been for warm glass varieties.

But the even better thing is that this thread has initiated a healthy dialogue, with plenty of valuable tips all around.

Ice for burns! Preferably in a medium size glass with some single malt. The pain goes away after a few hours anyways. Faster if the glass is larger.

I believe our-moderator and benefactor is becoming a quite successful comedian! as far as the other things go, I do not believe you cant put a 12 pound vase that youve put 15 hours on a diamond wheel, in a kiln and “ firepolish” it , forget it, Ill stretch my neck and say those firing schedules are for little old ladies making earrings that hardly need to be annealed at all
By the way I watched the youtube to the end and of course saw what was going on

I agree with Michael. Especially about the part concerning my second career.

Something that has to be considered here beyond the basic mass of the thing and how long that takes to get up to a tolerable temperature where you might screw with it is surface tension which undoes so much glass when you change it that all bets are off as to why it failed.

This is kind of a perversion of Graal. It was intended to be what it was. If you wanted some luster, OK, then acid etch but reheating it in a kiln is not likely to make for happy campers compared to what you will lose. The slumpy's stuff is just silly. Maybe taking Graham Stone's "Schedules" in reverse but I wouldn't bother. If you want Graal. make Graal.
