  1. Hi Y'all - I'm super stressing cause I don't know if I can reverse my mistake. The studio I work at uses a kiln that can fires to a max of cone 10, but regularly fires at cone 06 and uses EM342 whiteware clay. I somehow totally missed the memo and thought I heard them say we fire at cone 6 (!) so I went ahead and bought some really beautiful cone 5-6 glazes, covered a handful of pieces in them, and, to probably no one on this forum's surprise (but to my total dismay) they came out all kinds of wacky Is there any way I can salvage my pieces? One thought - could I fire the pieces again at cone 6? Would the clay be able to withstand that? Your ideas would be appreciated - thanks!

    This is Chewbacca, another bun who loves his blankies. He sadly passed away in late 2014, at the age of eleven. The piece is a wide-rimmed 10" bowl, fired to ^03.

  9. Hello Everyone, I'd like to start by introducing myself. My name is Ed and I'm new to the ceramics business. Literally all I know is what I've googled so far. What I'm trying to do is find the best method to mass produce stoneware ceramics. I wanted to get everyones opinion here on it. I would like to be able to create up to 10,000 small yet complex pieces a month or more from a few different designs. From what I have read there is the slip-casting method of creating a mold and then using slip to pour into the mold and wait for it to dry and then glaze and fire the piece. The problem I see with this method is I don't think I could reach the quantity of pieces I would like with slip-casting all by myself working full-time or with the help of 1 or 2 people. Another method that I've read about is ceramic injection molding. With this method it seems like I can meet the production goal of 10,000 pieces or more. I was wondering if anyone has made stoneware with ceramic injection molding? If anyone has experience with CIM could you shed some light on the costs involved in the process. Also if there is another way that would be better than anything I mentioned please let me know. Thanks Ed
