  1. I wanted to thank everyone who responded to my original post of Oct 17th and offered their suggestions of whether I could refire after a kiln malfunction. I had to replace all the elements in my kiln, the thermocouples and a relay -- major work! -- but it was necessary. And then with my fingers crossed I tried refiring all the pieces without doing any touch-ups on the glaze, as you suggested. I wanted to thank you all for your advice and encouragement! They all turned out as I expected they would. Here's the piece I was most worried about. It was the largest platter I've thrown up to now (15" at the rim), and I wanted it to turn out well. So my thanks to all who advised me. I'm so glad I came to you for help
  2. Thanks Neil. The glaze hasn't crawled but the colours are wrong. Should I fire as is, or add more glaze? Some pieces aren't as opaque as usual but I haven't under fired before so I don't know if that's to be expected.
  3. My kiln malfunctioned before reaching peak temperature. I was glaze firing stoneware at cone 6 and the witness cones indicated the temperature didn't even reach cone 5. Can I re-fire to cone 6? Or is all lost? If I can re-fire, do I need to re-glaze the pieces? Hope someone has had experience with this. Thank you!
