Bisque Dilemma

Recommended Posts

Here is the thing:  I have 4.4 cubic feet of kiln to fill (L&L 23 easy fire).  I must bisque only 3-4 small pieces of raku clay for a simple demo, bisque 1/2 shelf of cone 10 clay for an anagama wood fire, fire 1/2 shelf of unglazed 05 clay, either as bisque or as “done”, and fire 1/2 shelf of unglazed green ^6.  The latter is being used primarily as filler because I will not have anywhere near enough pieces to fill the kiln even once--the total is only about half a kiln load.  I will use shelf supports and firebrick for the rest of the filler.  My question is this:  is there a low fire cone number to which I could fire ALL of these in one shot for the purpose of bisquing them sufficiently for their later fires?

You guys made my day--thank you. I am still making pieces, so assuming they dry well before the firing deadline I should have a full kiln load after all, being able to fire the batch as a mix.  What a relief!
