  1. Transfer of Toxic Airborne Manganese Fumes: Kiln to Pool

    John, Your advice has been extremely helpful. Thank you for taking the time to respond. It is greatly appreciated.
  2. Hello everyone, I am test firing cassius basaltic clay, which releases the dangerous neurotoxin manganese during the firing and the only outlet that is available in a safe location (away from people) is near a pool. I researched manganese and found that this dangerous neurotoxin does mix with water, but the articles did not specify if airborne manganese "fumes" mix with water. To be more specific, Is it possible for excessive amounts of toxic manganese fumes to escape into the pool during the firing? Assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Deleting Duplicate Images

    Excellent, thank you very much.
  4. Hello, I am having issues deleting my duplicate images I posted to the forum gallery. Does anyone know how to delete/edit posted images on the gallery? Assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.

  7. Assistance with Oxidation

    I am actually propping open the kiln lid and opening all the peep holes to introduce oxygen. Specifically, I am using the cross draft ventilation method (no vent).

    Thank you.
  11. Hello, I recently moved to firing in a cone 6 electric kiln. I know that most electric kilns fire neutrally unless they are vented or have the lid propped open to introduce oxygen. However, how long do you introduce oxygen into the kiln during the glaze firing? Is there a general temperature range (from start of firing to end or fahrenheit range) to gauge how long you oxidize during glaze firings? Assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.
