I have "restored" grease stained micacious ware by firing low red heat. You don't need to go this high, and might be able to do it in a self cleaning oven.

So how many base glazes do you use and in what combinations? I have run a lot of tests myself, but find I seldom add more than one or two to my base set, and I may also phase out one or two. I have five glazes that I have used for ten years and still love them.

Probably fine, if you are making plates, but I like my tiles to have at least a 5 inch vertical surface to see how the glaze might flow on a tall form.

If you are thinking of using a propane torch to do the horse hair firing, I don't think cone 6 fired pots would work. They will probably crack.


Marcia has a good video on her process. https://youtu.be/XwCxP5Hv08g
