Hi jack away please.
Any discussion is good learning.
No apologies necessary

I'm doing a 30 min hold but lowered top temp. Took some testing. But this is not for super glossy glazes.

True most glossy glazes want to crash cool.

I don't have issues with pinholes yet.

My query was more on theoretical side. What's the difference with 2x firing vs 60 minute hold at temp. I think the later would have over firing issues. But why doesn't refire.


While none of my pieces have slumped. I have 3 x 4 x. Fired some pieces.

I had to re fire some black glossy pieces from my "special" schedule. Went to 6 ish on second firing I got the most amazing results. With iridescence in black

I'll even throw In a preliminary trim to bottom, ocassionally.

I not so technical yet
I have changed firing schedule which has improved certain glazes.

I have glossy black that cannot be under fired, and likes a crash cool vs controlled, refiring gives it a different look, Iridescence

I have tried to make glaze less glossy by increasing the epk.

While,not a glaze thing I am testing absorption /vitrification of commercial bodies and self made bodies.
