Instructional video for the construction of a 40-pound electric crucible furnace. A hands-on approach to designing and building super energy-efficient electric pot furnaces. Lauckner says that "the pot is large enough for hours production work, making sculpted or blown items. Top gathered furnaces like this are ideal for making patterned or plain pulled cane, paperweights and blown ornaments, where color can be placed on the top surface of the molten glass, and carefully picked up on the gather. This is a very useful technique which is difficult if not impossible to do accurately in a larger side-gathered furnace."
