I am all for hands-on learning and experimenting. So, when one of my students asked if the kiln was hot enough to melt glass, they wanted to try it! I said that if anyone brought in marbles, we could melt them in the kiln. The students were so excited! Here are our results. This was just for fun, but the students learned something, and were creative! I really want my students to gain a love for art, and to know it can be fun.
