I have a 16 year old skutt that has worked well for along time. Recently I calculated some EPK for kiln wash. Thing have not been the same since. A lot of little bits of fire brick came off during this firing. I took the kiln a part for maintance, and fixed the various drooping elements and cleaned up the chips the larger ones I repaired with pieces of fire brick cut to fit and some kiln cement. In the last 2 glaze firings I'm ending up with little bits of what looks like fire brick on some of the surfaces. I thoroughly brushed the brick and vacuumed very gently the element recesses and the whole kiln. After the 1 st time I saw the bits on a couple pots I re cleaned and I scrubbed down and washed the bottom sides of all my shelfs and plate stackers just in case. It happened again. Any advise? has anyone else had this problem? Can any of these pots be salvaged? Thanks
