  1. Hello! I have a paragon electric kiln with a sentinel controller. I fired to cone 6 today, the last I checked my kiln it was at 1552 F and by the time I checked it again it had shut off and was at 954 F. How should I proceed? I just turned the kiln back on and refired as soon as I saw it so now I’m just hoping for everything to be ok I’ve had this happen once before and the glaze turned out terrible but I’m not sure if it was just my glazing/ bad glaze fit. The colors were off and lots of crazing. Could the kiln shutting off midfire be the cause? Has anybody had any experience with the kiln shutting off during glaze fires? I’ve tried looking up on the forums and some say it depends on the temperature it was shut off. If the glaze is bubbling it might cause crawling. Since the kiln was in the 1500s I’m sure the glaze was melted. I’m just worried the glaze will be ruined after I worked so hard on it Please if anybody has advice on this issue I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
  2. Hi everyone, Quick question: we use calcite alumina, or alumina calcined (in South Africa) under ware when glaze firing to provide a surface allowing movement to avoid cracking, what name does the rest of the world use? TIA Andrea
