  1. electric kiln problems

    I changed the elements and tested to make sure they are all working. Fired another cone 6 glaze fire. Again, after 30 hours the cone in the kiln sitter never melted. The glow from the kiln never got beyond orange. I need a pyrometers I guess. Around 30 hrs I shut the kiln off. Over 1/2 the pots were glossy but the others were Still chalky looking. Obviously not hitting temp. I guess I need to get an electrician to come Check out the kiln. Glazes were amaco potters choice glazes. Think I can re-fire?
  2. I'm firing my students work to cone 6. The elements are old and need changing but I went for it anyway. 30 hours later I shut the kiln off and it never hit temp (kilnsitter cone never melted) Am I going to have puddles of glaze on the shelves?

  4. firing scheudle

    Are planning to layer? eventually, I have heavy stamps and texture and want a lot of contrast. I just bought them and haven't run test tiles yet. It's been a while since I fired oxidation, I cant find a firing schedule online anywhere

  14. I just bought some Amaco Potter's Choice glazes to try out. Any suggestions on a firing schedule for cone 5 for a manual electric kiln? thanks!
