I am reaching out for help to fire this Song Dynasty ( 960 - 1279 AD ) ceramic / stoneware Chinese funerary jar. I went to a couple of local shops, but one would not help, the other did not understand what they were looking at. Tried contacting the Washington Clay Arts Association, but no reply. For what ever reason the kiln attendant ( got drunk and passed out , who knows. ) did not leave this in long enough to melt the glaze. Would like to fire this at 1250 to 1300 °C in oxidizing to neutral atmosphere. One option of course is to use a modern kiln, but it would be a lot more fun to fire in a traditional earth/clay outdoor wood burning kiln. An opportunity to fire a piece like this is likely never going to happen again and would like very much to hang out at the kiln, document, take pics, and just sort of feel like am back in the day and doing this piece a little justice. Maybe do a late night dance around the kiln Any help would be greatly appreciated !
