      Moderators needed!   12/08/2017

      Ceramic Arts Network is looking for two new forum moderators for the Clay and Glaze Chemistry and Equipment Use and Repair sections of the Ceramic Arts Network Community Forum. We are looking for somebody who is an active participant (i.e. somebody who participates on a daily basis, or near daily) on the forum. Moderators must be willing to monitor the forum on a daily basis to remove spam, make sure members are adhering to the Forum Terms of Use, and make sure posts are in the appropriate categories. In addition to moderating their primary sections, Moderators must work as a team with other moderators to monitor the areas of the forum that do not have dedicated moderators (Educational Approaches and Resources, Aesthetic Approaches and Philosophy, etc.). Moderators must have a solid understanding of the area of the forum they are going to moderate (i.e. the Clay and Glaze Chemistry moderator must be somebody who mixes, tests, and has a decent understanding of materials). Moderators must be diplomatic communicators, be receptive to others’ ideas, and be able to see things from multiple perspectives. This is a volunteer position that comes with an honorary annual ICAN Gold membership. If you are interested, please send an email outlining your experience and qualifications to jharnetty@ceramics.org.

Blackout When Glaze Firing

Recommended Posts

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.
