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.
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
