Hello,

      I am new to ceramics. I fired my first bisque test fire and the kiln shut down too soon. ( My Mistake)

 

Can I re-fire my artwork even though it is cooled down? It went10 hours on low, three hours on 2, two hours on 3, then it turned off because I forgot to re-set the timer.The cone did not even melt at all. The art pieces look great. Do I even need to re-fire?

Just start it up again and set the timer. You can probably speed it up since all the waters gone.

Yes like Marcia said you can refire.  However I would speed up that bisque firing.  It should never take 10 hours on low.  My entire bisque to cone 06 is like 8 hours max.
