I fired a load of globes, and they are dull, didn't quite get done. When I febrile them, do I run the kiln for the same time?( low, medium ,, high) or just high till the cone bends

You'll want to go a little bit slower at the beginning, so as not to crack them due to thermal shock.

Hey Bob,

 

if it is'n a pottery term then it should be. I think my pots sometimes get febrilations and then they crack.
