Hi everyone, I opened my kiln this morning after my glaze firing yesterday and found some pieces melted...they didn't explode, they didn't warp or bubble, they actually melted. I'm so confused why this would happen. I fired to cone 6 in my electric kiln and what's also curious is that other cups I slipcast with the same slip, and positioned next to a piece that melted, are intact and made it through like normal. And one piece that melted was not a slipcast piece...it's so odd. Any thoughts? Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks!
I fired several pieces made from Laguna Bmix clay WC401. They came out of the bisque firing of cone05 just fine, but when glazed and fired to cone 6 the pieces melted completely? Any idea why? The glazes were commercial cone 6 glazes. I've read you can fire to cone 6 with no problem.
