What is a Pot Melt?

What is a Pot Melt? 

Glass is placed into a pot with a hole in the bottom and melted at high temperatures so that the molted glass runs out of the hole making patterns. Here are all our Pot Melt patterns, kits and more.

Slumpy's has 2 Pot melt kits to help get you started! This is our Large Pot Melt kit that comes with 2 stainless steel rings, 1 stainless steel rectangle, 6 bowls, 1 Pot melt support, 12-15 pounds of Odd cuts, and large fiber strips. What a kit! 

We also have a Small Pot melt kit, find more information here

For smaller kilns, we have 6" and 8" Mini melts. Here is a video tutorial on how to use Slumpy's Mini Melt system… More information here

Your Pot melt final piece will give you a unique piece that will be one-of-a-kind. The amount of glass placed in the pot melt bowl will determine the thickness of your piece. After fusing, you can cold-work your piece to round off your edges or even full fuse your piece to create 1/4" thick piece then slump or drape on your favorite Slumpy's mold

Tips: Space colors with clear odd-cuts to allow color definition during melting. Use light, contrasting colors to achieve best result.
