I was reading another post on here and it said something about cracking the lid or keeping peep holes open when firing an electric kiln. Are you supposed to? Is it bad that I don't? And for bisque? Glaze? Or both?
This is a video of production techniques from Agost/Alicante, Spain. I spents several summers there and an entire year on a Fulbright. I published a book on the different forms they made there. There were 21 potteries there when I first visited. Now there are about 4 or 5. Centro Agost was started by Ilse Schutz who purchased La Nava's 1820 factory and set it up as a studio study center. Here is La Navas video 17+ minutes They produce botijos..water jugs. They say adding salt to the clay makes the clay white and the water taste better.I have a photo of this potter from 1985.This the the modern las Navas with a four story wood fired kiln with a freight elevator to get the pots to the upper levels.
