HELP! I screwed up my bisque firing and fired at cone 5 instead of 05. Major button pushing error. Can I still glaze my pieces and fire them at cone 5 again? Any suggestions of how to make the glaze stick to the bisque since it is so no porous? Thanks for any help.
Please help, I am about to buy a kiln but I want to check it doesn't have asbestos in it. I have never owned a kiln before, so don't have a lot of experience. Does anyone know much about this model of kiln? Kilns and furnace TLB 223 harrier. The person I am buying it from thinks it was manufactured around 1999. I would be very grateful if anyone is able to help. Thank you!!
Hi - I am fairly new to clay and love it. I have been doing it for about a year now and am improving day by day. But I'm dying to know, experienced potters, what do I do with all of these early pots?! My cabinets are full, I'm running out of friends to give them to, and frankly, they are wonky and lead heavy and I don't even want to keep them! But throwing them away just seems wasteful. Looking into the future, I know I will make hundreds more of these as I work to get better and better. Suggestions?? What did you do with all of your early, crappy works? Thanks! - Anita
Gay Nemeth posted a topic in Equipment Use and RepairHi all I have recently purchased a Cone Art Model 1822 Kiln (manual with a cone sitter). I'm very excited to get going, but alas - I can't get the thing working! I followed the electrical supply through the system with a voltmeter; checking the kiln sitter plunger switch; the timer switch; and the infinite switch - all in both on and off positions. Everything looked in order ie. voltage detected when on, none detected when off. I also checked for power running into the elements - it's there, yet no heat is being generated!!!! (after 11/2 hours) (I don't understand!!!) The red operation lights, connected through the infinity switch, show power going to them, and also do not turn on (I figured this was because of a burnt out bulbs, but now, ???). I had to change the elements (came with the unit) because there was a break in one of them - I took pictures and feel confident I rewired properly (took pictures and understood it - plus - there's power going to it...) I'm so confused as to why this isn't working and would appreciate any feedback anyone can give me. Thanks! gay
