  1. A friend of mine is firing sculptured gnomes--about 24" tall, with thick areas of up to 2", and having them explode. After thorough drying at 180 deg F, at what rate should she heat the kiln? The clay is a standard stoneware with no added grog.

I coated them with some copper based raku glaze. While I was piling up the brush, I just placed these two pieces in the middle of the pile and lit it. I then spent the next couple of hours running around the yard for more deadfall to keep the fire going. I got the pieces hot enough to melt the glaze and got a pretty good workout at the same time.
