Hello! I just did a bisque firing with my Paragon A55B which has a manual kiln sitter. I fired to 06 in only 3 hours and 15 minutes following the suggested firing schedule from paragon. Which was as follows: 1 hour - Low, Top peephole out, lid vented 30 min - Medium, top peephole out, lid vented 30 min - High, top peephole out, lid vented Then just leave on high with peepholes in and lid closed. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best way to slow this cycle down a bit? Or do you think thats fine for a bisque? I imagine with more pots in it, it will slow it down a bit but its a small kiln and doesn't hold that much. Thanks!! Ariel
Hi there. I have bought this glaze : https://www.potterycrafts.co.uk/Products/potterycrafts-stoneware-glazes/P2813 (firing range 1180 - 1250 degrees C). I have applied it to stoneware clay that I bisque fired at: I have been doing this for bisque: Section 1 - room -> 600 at 90 degree per hour Section 2: 600 - 1000 at 200 per hour Could anyone reccomend a firing schedule in degrees celcius per hour for me? I use an electric kiln. Will I need a soak or anything? Thank you, Lara
Hi there. I have two types of clay and I was wondering what the best firing schedule is for them for bisque? I have an electric Nabetherm kiln and I am making bowls/mugs. I don't really understand cones and so if possible, please explain using degrees C! Grogged Buff EarthenWare clay - Firing Temp.1000-1280deg.C Stoneware Special Fleck Clay - 1120∞c - 1280∞c Thank you !
Hi there, I have Amaco Potters Choice glazes and they say that they should be fired to cone 5/6. I am very new to pottery and was wondering what this means in terms of the firing schedule in my Nabetherm kiln. I have been trying to get the effects as shown on their website but they do not look very similar! What would the different outcomes of cone 5 and 6 be? Thanks so much and really appreciate any help, lara
