  1. Right! Hmm, very interesting. Thanks for the information and advice!
  2. Thank you again! That's such an interesting thought! I know exactly what you mean, if firing with a gas kiln I would do the same, hold around bisque temp. However, I thought that was for body reduction? Pulling the iron out to the surface of the clay not the glaze. I can see how that would still effect the glaze though.
  3. I'm looking at lapidary supply shops now. They seem to categorize the silicon carbide by "Grit" is this different than "Mesh"?
  4. Thank you, for answering both of my threads I posted today!
  5. Thank you. Do you have any experience with the locally reduced glazes? I'm having a hard time finding any thorough details on them like firing schedules, glaze makeup, variations, etc...
  6. How long will an average kiln being fired twice a month to bisque and cone 6 last? I know there are incredible variables and you can never be sure. Elements need replacing, fuses blow, thermacouples need replacing. It is different from kiln to kiln. I can't seem to find a rough average or generalization anywhere online. I'm mostly just curious! Any input is great!
  7. Hi, I'm trying to get the elusive oxidation copper red with localized reduction glaze to work. Everywhere I look it suggests 600 mesh silicon carbide is necessary to get the localized reduction. The silicon carbide I have is 400 mesh. How can I increase the mesh of my silicon carbide?
