ired my raku finally but one of the glaze not acting right. Wonder if too much humidity could be the reason faulty pyrometer or a mistake in mixing? My pyrometers went crazy last time i was firing.

    I use commercial raku glazes. The copper glaze gives me the greatest variation in color; from iridescent green to all copper to
    some copper with iridescent other colors which vary according to
    way the light strikes my slab pieces when hung on the wall. I'm not sure why there's such variation.

    I like my mixed glazes as well but something went wrong. Last time it was this humid and hot, my pyrometers looked like geiger counters jumping around. I have been mixing my own raku glazes for decades.

Must put off raku firing until the weather cools down a little.

    I've never fired in that cold, nor do I want to. I'd go with too hot though. You don't have to dress in layers.

    I plan to be there. I've been looking for a hands-on workshop similar to this that's within reasonable driving distance from my home.

another extremely hot muggy day in south Texas. I have a friend coming in August to fire with me. I hope we get a break with the heat.

    I sympathize with you, were having extreme heat warnings here also. Have to garden before I can even have a cup of coffee in the morning.
