Hi Folks...As many of you know, I've been glazing almost exclusively with Amaco Potter's Choice glazes at ^6. I decided to try one of Laguna's black clays which can't be fired higher than ^5. Soooo...I'm going to fire about 3 dozen test tiles to ^5 and would like to get your input on where to place them in my electric kiln. Should they all go on one shelf or be spread over multiple shelves? If on one shelf, at the bottom, middle, or top of the kiln? All this is to find out if there is a difference in the look of the glazes between ^5 and ^6. I like my ^6 products but am open to experimentation and am looking forward to the ^5 outcome. What do you think?
bubbly.pdf Hello, hi ! I've been a bit lost and what seems to be a loop when looking to re-create this glaze somehow. I'm pretty fresh to pottery, and am willing to take any and all information to help me understand what creates this effect and if this piece is done by using two different types of glazes. For example a white over gray glaze with a higher levels of iron oxide? Thank you kindly
Hello! I have a question regarding what cones my kiln is able to fire to. I’m using a manual skutt 1227 that hasn’t been used in approximately 4yrs. I am a school teacher and have been told this kiln has been at the school since 1996. I have successfully fired the kiln up to cone 04 with low fire clay and glazes. Today I tried to fire some cone 6 clay/glazes, but after about 9.5 hrs on high the kiln still had not reached cone 6 temps. Could this be a problem of needing new elements? Or something more complex?
