  1. Hello, I have a new L&L Fuego kiln, I did a test firing. The kiln has standard settings for bisque and glaze, bisque is cone 04, glaze is cone 06 - I can programme it differently, but starting out with the their settings. I bisque fired some small vulcan black clay pieces using the glaze setting because I read that the clay required that temperature. I was surprised with the colour, expected it to be more black. Then I glazed them with clear glaze, and two different celedon glazes and put them through a glaze fire again. An electrician (annoyingly) shut off the kiln an hour into the the fire and I just restarted it fresh. They came out this morning all powdery and I am not sure what I did wrong. The kiln is brand new, it has a temperature reader and I checked and the temp did get high, I dont have cones in the kiln. Thank you! UPDATE - I defo didn't fire hot enough so refired at cone 6 - however, I should have maybe re glazed? Also I used a ceyladon glaze and I think I need something much more opaque for the black clay.... LEARNING CURVE!!!
