Topics I've Started


22 July 2014 - 07:26 PM

I plan on testing....

Keeping in mind work heat.

When a piece gets refired, does it become more mature? Does absorption level decrease, does a glaze become more "glassy"

I'm sure there is a difference if you doubled the time at final temp. But as a refire you just doubled the time at fired temp.

I've seen subtle differences in glaze. But never thought about the body.

Is there risk of over firing/ slumping if my body is close to limit?

I'll run tests.....
