Two Pieces Ruined, Help Needed

24 May 2016 - 01:31 AM

Hi everyone, so Ive just opened the kiln and its not good.

 

I had two large tile pieces which smaller pieces attached  on by scoring , slipping wiggling and pressing down really well. Or so I thought  :( the smaller 'attached' pieces have come away from the surface tile making them only fit for the  ceramic grave yard.

 

Ive made a piece similar before and Is been fine and the thing is I have three more pieces ready be fired. Can anyone shed any light as to why this is happening? Im certain they are dry and  I took extra care in fixing them on, all help much appreciated.

Cleaning Up Batts After Firing Disaster

13 April 2016 - 04:26 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I accidentally fired earthenware clay to 1300°, oops. Its all stuck to the kiln bats and I need help  in how to clean it all up. There is also one piece fused to a kiln brick. Its a big mess and a lot of work lost. I would really appreciate any help on this. thanks Julia


Stoneware Clay With Low Fire Glaze

29 February 2016 - 08:45 AM

Hhi everyone , I hope someone can help with this question.

 

I am making pieces for the garden and so using stoneware and high bisque firing.

However the glazes I want to use are firing around 1040, really bright colours.

 

Will  the fact that its an earthenware glaze on stoneware be a problem, ie will it fire to the correct colour?

 

Thanks Julia
