When I set the firing info into my electric kiln for firing greenwre, I was apparently badly distracted, as I failed to change from the last setting of cone 5....my intention was to fire at 04. When I checked my kiln, which should have been cooling off, I had a message of FTH.............AND I assumed the worst.........I immediately turned the power off to the kiln, and waited 24 hours to allow cooling. Apparently the kiln had held and not begu
n the cooling off process......
I had no idea what I would find when I finally, in fear, opened the kiln. I did find very discolored (yellowish brown) pots. WOW...after 3 years of owning my kiln, I thought I was beyond such stupidity.
What can I do with these pots? Can they be glazed and fired, or should I discard all and chalk this large kiln full of beautiful (ruined?) ware to a very bad experience. Also, what about my beautiful kiln.....have I possibly damaged it? My kiln is a Paragon with a Sentry 2.0 digital temperature controller.
A hobby turned in to a disaster. Please help......also, make me feel better by telling me someone else has been similarly distracted.
