Linda uses part of my workshop for her molten glass manipulation. The glass is at about 1700 degs when it starts to flow. What she does is control the speed and movement of the string as it comes out of a container of shards that are placed just so within the suspended kilns. Not something normal people would be doing when the outside temperature is 92, but then, no one ever accused us of being normal. These stringers will be cut and used in some of her glass artwork in her studio.
