I think the deafening silence you hear is because no one has done this. I thought about it once, but I don't know whether my kiln even goes up that high, and I forget what temperature you had to reach. Good luck! If you manage it, report back!

I have done a vitrigraph pull with soft boro (60 or so coe) and it had to get up to 1850 F to start the glass moving. At that temp you end up firing the flower pot higher than it was previously, which can cause it to crack badly. This guy was experimenting with it last year: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Boros...53495874663539

Good Luck!
