  1. I'm a beginner potter and I've tried wood firing pottery outdoors because an electric kiln is not very accessible for me. My small kiln is about a bit bigger than 2'x2'x2' and made from regular red bricks with a regular grill grate halfway to place pottery. As you can probably tell, it has terrible insulation and I can never get it to a high enough temp to fire glazed pottery. I can bisque fire and it works but It never gets hot enough to melt glaze, even the low fire glazes I use. I really don't want to ditch this project because I've already put so much time and material into it
  2. 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.
  3. Gips inside clay its ok to survive firing? please?

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. Next time I'll try to have more burn stuff piled ready to go. The are
