I have some pottery pieces made from raku clay that didn't get fired.  I don't know if I will get a chance to raku again and I was wondering if there is anything I could do with these pieces since they are made from raku clay.  Can raku clay be used and glaze fired to cone 06 with some low-fire ceramic glazes?

I use Raku clay all the time and I do not raku. You can fire it to cone 04  which I do and a glaze firing to cone 5 -6.... It holds up perfectly. You can also use 06 glazes and fire it at a lower temp.

It probably depends on the raku, but we used a white raku and glaze fired to cone 6 (I forget what the normal bisque fire was) - you should probably check with the manufacturer.
