Kilnworking or kiln forming is the process of fusing or shaping glass (usually in or over a mold) by heating it in a kiln. A "kiln" is an oven used to process a substance by burning, drying, or heating. In contemporary glassworking, kilns are used to fuse enamel and for kiln-forming processes such as slumping.
