My new L&L 6.8c.f. kiln has been shipped! Thank you Neil Estrick. Now I am overflowing with questions.
1. Do I fire my first test firing with just shelves and posts? Or can I add test tiles to bisque? Or can I do a whole bisque in the first firing.
2. I built these test tile holders with the help of Bob Coyle after I saw them in a post of his. I am experimenting with different sizes to fit nicely on the shelves. Should I bisque fire the tiles in flat piles like in the front of the holders, and how high a stack can I pile them? Then I will glaze fire in the holders. I don't want them to warp in the bisque, but say they were 5 high...would the middle tile be discolored from being sandwiched between the others.
