  1. Hi everyone! I am an art teacher and am new to the firing process. I have the AMACO Standard Economy Electric Kiln (EC-55). kiln. The kiln sitter I have is the model LT-3 (I attached a picture of the kiln sitter that I have). I did a bisque fire last night with the pieces that were made from lowfire earthenware clay. The clay can be fired from 06-04. I used cone 05 and and set the timer on the kiln sitter to 12 hours. This morning I walked in and the dial seems to have stopped at 6 hours instead of firing for the full 12 hours. I am not sure what the problem could have been. Do you think I should re-fire the pieces for an additional 6 hours with a new cone? I don't know if they would be okay to glaze or not because it did not fire for the full amount of time. Thanks!
  2. Great so I bought cone 05 clay instead of cone 5 clay and of course realized this after I fired a few pieces to cone 5. Is there any way I can salvage these couple of pieces? If I try to glaze them, at this point, what cone glaze do I fire to? I've been told these are probably lost but I'm hoping you guys might have some creative alternatives...
