Hi all, I've been working with ceramics for a few years, but always at studios where all the glazes are mixed and my work is fired for me. And they've all been cone 10 gas reduction. I've just ordered a kiln (skutt KM-1027 Kiln 208V 1P w FK) and am looking for more information on firing the electric kiln to cone 10. From what i understand it wears out the elements quite quickly and uses a lot more electricity? This makes sense, but it also it seems like there's not a lot of glaze choices for cone 10 oxidation fire? I will probably switch to cone 6 at some point, but for now i still have a bunch of cone 10 clay and work drying so the first couple of fires may need to be to cone 10. If anyone can offer advice - pitfalls/ possibilities of firing to cone 10 in an electric kiln? Which glazes can i use? Any advice/ encouragement would be appreciated! Thanks in advance, Nic
