In Topic: Blisters In Electric Kiln

Rogue, I just turn let the kiln turn off and cool down by itself.  Sometime leave the vent on for a couple of hours. (Anxious)  The only thing I could think of is some contamination on the bisque fired clay, finger spots, etc.

Sorry about your problems with Stoned Denium.  It is one of my favorite glazes.  I fire a 1027 to cone 6 using this glaze dipped. Up to cone 6 in 7 1/2 hours with vent then regular cool down.  Nice shiny glaze.    My only worry is that it seems to be really thick out of the dip, but I have never had a problem with it.

Bioman, you probably are familiar with Trinity Ceramics in Dallas.  They carry a lot of the Laguna clay.  I get my Speckled Buff there.   Check out Armadillo's Cinco Blanco and Cone 5 white clay also.

In the morning before it reaches 107F here in the oven that is Texas classical music on the area NPR station.  Always classical music whether I'm working in clay or wood.
