Single Status Update
I just finished a glaze firing to Cone 6 in my small manual electric kiln. I used Coyote Cone 6 glazes in a SNO Industries kiln. The kiln sitter tripped after firing 4 on low with lid slightly open, 4 hours medium, and roughly 4 hours on High. The small mug seemed to be leaking water, once I washed it it is holding my cup of coffee and not leaking at all. A larger vase I made is holding some water now but leaking and water is seeping out.
Can you tell me why some pieces seep water or don't hold water after being glaze fired?

Thanks for the tip, I hope to fire next time on that schedule. Should I get a box of Cone 7's?
What clay body are you using?
I purchased this clay from a company in Baton Rouge, Alligator Clay. The kind I am using is Mid Range 212 - Black Pepper.
From their site:
This is a relatively smooth, stoneware type clay, which may be fired at cone 4-6. When fired this clay is light brown with darker speckles. Good clay for throwing or sculpture.
