  1. When I am firing my electric kiln, I start with the lid propped open about 2 inches and the top peephole out. Then at around 1000 degrees F I shut the lid. The top peephole is open the whole time. I understand that the lid needs to be propped to allow moisture and gasses to escape in the early stages of firing. My questions are: 1) is 1000F an appropriate temp to close the lid? 2) Is it necessary to prop the lid on a ^6 glaze firing as well as the bisque, or only during the bisque (^06) I have been firing this way for a couple years and the pots always come out well. However the lid has
  2. I am wondering how to fire - in an electric kiln- burnished pots brushed with a porcelain/stoneware terra sigillata- or even just burnished! Is this possible? What temperature would you suggest to fire to? I’d like for them to be strong enough to be carried at markets and slightly shiny and smooth on the outside. Any knowledgeable advice and tips would be valued. Thank you V.
  3. Hello everyone, I have bought a second-hand electric Rohde 5024 Kiln (230V) and a TR 305 controller. I have done only 2 biscuit firing at 950C and noticed the pieces were almost vitrified; our mocal clay is rich in iron oxide. I recently did a slow glaze firing at 900C and my work melted down, some kiln shelves are distorted and even broken by the heat. The kiln electric plug is stick to the wall socket.Do you have an idea of what has happened? The whole situation is devastating as I live in West Africa and do not have potters, technicians or manufacturers who know ab
  4. I have an Axner electric wheel. It's 15 years old, but I've only really used it in the last 2 months. It began making a whirring noise today. Followed troubleshooting guide that came with model and discerned that when wheel is on and in neutral, if I turn it by hand there is no noise. Troubleshooting guide suggests greasing bearings but provides no guidance on how to do this. Can anyone point me to a video or instructions?
  5. Since day 1 I wanted to do wood firing. I started with an electric kiln and although it is possible to do interesting things I'm still focused on ultimately doing Anagama. I cant truly test Cone 10 glazes in my electric and want to get as close to possible to that environment, which means a way to do reduction, neutral and oxidation. So I got a broke down Duncan kiln donated to me and the burner came in today so I'm super excited!!! Stripping it down tonight and getting the elements out then will figure out how to cut the burner port and the top opening. Then I have to find a 40 - 50 gallon ta
  6. Hello! Im slowly building a home studio and am ready to add a kiln. Is there anyone in Los Angeles who has an electrician they would recommend? Thanks!!
  7. Hey yall! I recently was given a kiln, the Cress E-23. I have never fired my own work prior to this time, opting to drop it off at a studio because I did not have the wiring for a personal kiln. I ran a successful bisque fire for the first time, and am wanting to do a glaze test this week. What is a good schedule for a cone 10 firing? Is it important to cool slowly? What knowledge can you share? The schedules I have found (though scarce) are like this SEG1 100/hr to 220 with a 1 hour hold SEG2 300/hr to 2300 with no hold SEG3 108/hr to 2361 with a 1 hour hold
  8. Hello! I have done some pottery in the past in a classroom setting and recently acquired an old electric kiln for a price I couldn't say no too. I've never fired my own pieces before and my husband had to go pick the kiln up for me so I wasn't able to ask the previous owner the many questions I now have. The kiln is small and electric with no visible markings to indicate who made it or what the model is. The only thing that seems to determine if it's on or off is if it is plugged in. As soon as it's plugged in, it heats up and gets going, there is no control panel or on/off switch. It

    Set of butterfly bowls I just finished. I'm fairly pleased with how they came out even though they were over fired.
