In Topic: 15 Hours And Not At Cone 6

Yesterday, 04:53 PM

If it has stalled ( you said "cones" so I am assuming 5,6,7 ) and 6 is starting to bend after an hour then it may have stalled around cone 4 and another half hour max should get you full cone 6 with heat work... sounds like you are going to be OK though.

If as mentioned you trust your witness cones and you wait for the cone 6 to bend completely I think you will have a good firing with the final heat work evening out your glazes. If you do abort at cone 5 I think your glaze test will be really skewed though and would re-do. On most glazes we get completely different outcomes from cone 5 and cone 6.

No real interest in hand building but love seeing the work of others. I just do not have the artistic talent to do anything meaningful with slab work but I do hope to change that in the long run.

well I would recommend squaring it all with HOA before you get in to deep on things that are in your deed restrictions.

 

The HOA just enforces those restrictions they don't make them. I know its a love/hate relationship. We hate having to conform to restrictions too but we do love it when the neighborhood makes sure no one starts a car/junk collection on their lawn or operates a muffler shop next to us. One time we had some folks decide to make their acre a three wheel race track and it was absolutely bizarre.

 

Those folks were actually miffed that they couldn't do it.
