    I was very happy- everything seemed to bisque fine. I had 2 cracked rims of bowls but i think they occurred in the trimming process and just showed up in the bisque. I put some cones in the kiln to check for accuracy and they did nothing.. so I wonder what is going on. The wares seem fine though.

    What cones did you put in ? Just be careful glazing if hte cone you wanted to fire to did nothing as this would suggest the kiln didn't get to temp/cone you wanted to and this would mean that your ware is more porous than you expect so the glaze will go on the pot thicker, if you get what I'm sayning.
    Exciting firing!
