Total newbie kiln help needed

Recommended Posts

post-38991-136869505369_thumb.jpgHello everyone,

 

I am brand new to clay after taking a small class at a bead retreat here in Australia.

 

I have a heap of pieces made that are beads, pendants etc for jewellery,and it is all dry ready for firing.

 

I have a bit 20 year old kiln here from Tetlow (an Aussie brand) and it is manual. I am wondering if anyone can tell me how you use it as I am not familiar with the dials at all.

 

One knob has 0-100 in increments of 10's

the other has a horizontal sitting numbered semi circle with numbers 0-1200 going up by 200's and a twist dial with numbers 0-12 and X 100 under that.

 

I am unsure what they should be set to..

I also make glass beads so will be using it to anneal them at around 500 egrees and also the clay pendants at around 1000.

 

and how long should I fire from greenware to bisque for?

 

Thanks in advance
