  1. Thank you all for your very helpful responses! As long as I don't have to worry about causing some sort of kiln damaging event I will give it a try; and also try making the hole first and latter inserting the nail. I hadn't though about different expansion rates.
  2. Would it be safe to bisque fire to cone 08 and then reduction fire to cone 10 a stoneware bowl that has a 6D 2" common steel nail that stick up through the center of the bowl?
  3. I've just started using an adjustable gauge that I got from Euclids. Here is the link: https://www.euclids.com/index.php?item_id=TFAPG What i like about it is that it pivots so that it does not get in my way.
  4. Many thanks for your help! I will fire the molds to 08 and will try out the other suggestions.
  5. I have made some hump molds using Standard Clay 112 (a mid-fire clay). My question is: do I need to fire it to cone 04 (as Standard recommends) or would it be better to fire it to cone 08 so that the clay will more easily release from the mold?
