I was watching a workshop video on youtube taught by Wally Asselberghs and in it it was mentioned that you burnish the pottery but if you fire it over 950 degrees for bisquing the pot loses its sheen.  So in naked raku do you bisque fire to a lower temp ( I usually fire  to cone 05) or just bisque fire as normal?

Wally is great. He was using centigrade.950 C is about cone 09
And yes bisque to a lower temperture.

Yes. Much hotter and you lose the terra sig sheen. That is what I bisque to for sagger, foil sagger, horse hair.
