Hi all! I would very much appreciate any advice on my small quandary:
I let a friend make a few bowls as a Christmas present for his wife, and I was planning/hoping to throw them in with the low fire (^06 ) glaze firing I have already planned. Being that he used a ^6 clay body, bisque firing them to ^06 seems permissible, although I usually do bisques at ^08. However, reading up on the question, I discovered that it is not a good idea to mix greenware and glaze ware in the same firing, even if they require the same temperature, do to the possibility of gasses produced by the greenware interfering with the glaze chemical reactions.
My question is this: how bad of an idea is it to do it anyway, being that all of my pots are glazed in a clear glaze with black and white underglazes?? He needs them by Christmas of course, and I do not have any additional greenware to fire at the moment. So ya see, I was hoping to save dollars (and greenhouse emissions) by not having to do an entire bisque firing for four bowls... Advice from all you smart potters out there would be very appreciated!! Thank you!
