Hey friends. I’ve been throwing for a while at a community center but just got my own kiln. I threw some pieces on low fire body (cone 06-08) and then stupidly glazed them in a mid fire glaze (cone 5-7). Is there any way to salvage this or fire low fire clay with mid fire glaze without risking messing up my kiln? Any creative solutions/ help are so appreciated! Thank you!!
Greetings! I'm a fairly novice potter who has made figurative pottery with some functionality using Amaco Low Fire White, which fires to 04. These are mostly ring dishes and candle holders. I've recently been looking to make food safe pottery such as plates, teapots, and pie plates, but have been given conflicting reports on how to make them fully food safe. I know that low fire clay is somewhat porous, but would a good quality glaze make them 100% food safe? I also have heard that pie plates and other bakeware may be prone to thermal shock if just stuck into a hot oven, and then contradicting information that well glazed, low fire pots tend to have less of this issue than say, stoneware. I'm not sure, and would love any insight! Thank you!
