Hi All,

 

i was just glaze firing and a huge storm came then blackout. The kiln was at about 700 celsius when it turned off. Now the blackout is over, but cannot turn the kiln off, because there is still a storm.

I usually fire at 1020 Celsius.

Do you think if i refire the goods tomorrow, they will be ok? No damage happened in there?

 

Thanks

 

Nandor

Looks like you fire to about Cone 05, which is what I do in my classroom.  I had the same problem there, where some spring storms went through and knocked out the power.  

 

You'll be fine, just firing the kiln as normal, whenever your get around to it.
