M35 Starfire Drape Mold

As featured on page 35 in the book - Joy of Fusing

The M35 Starfire Drape Mold enables fusers to create a shape that is very reminiscent of a blown glass vessel. The unconventional shape of this draping mold produces a surprisingly large bowl with six gentle waves that ripple around the perimeter.

The mold is 12” (30.5 cm) by 4” (10.2 cm) high and can be used in most medium-sized kilns with a firing chamber that is at least 13” (33 cm) in diameter (or square) and 5 1/2” (14 cm) high.

Creating a drape bowl on an M35 Starfire is simple:

1. Cut one or 2 glass disks from 11" to 12" (28 to 31 cm) then decorate the top in any style that you like (download the Graffiti Design below).

2. Fire the disk to create a fused flat blank - use the schedule provided in the 12-page color booklet that is included with the mold.

3. Place your pre-fused flat blank on the M35 Starfire draping mold and set the kiln controller to the recommended drape fire schedule to shape the bowl

4. Then take the blown-glass effect to the next level by adding a stemmed foot using our C105 Circle Foot Casting Mold and our F500 Stackable Fusing Foot Rings.
