Hi, I am looking for some advise if possible. I fired my kiln last night but the kiln didn't reach full temperature. I looked at the cone I have in my cone stand and it is not melted. The cone in the sitter either melted or fell off and the kiln shut off. Can I re-fire? As I have not unloaded it, can I just turn it on? Thanks Mal
Please help me. I can’t figure out what stoneware clay my kiln could handle. I recently purchased the Jen Ken AF3C 11/9 Ceramic Kiln. It’s Max temp (as stated) is 2100* or about cone 3. The problem is I need a functional ceramic that’s not too porous so avoiding earthenware. Does anyone know what type of clay I can fire at the temp? Or am I coming at this problem the wrong way? Thank you so much for your help!
I've got a small top loading kiln which states that the max firing temperature is 1000 degrees Celsius, however I really need to fire to Cone 6 (1240 ish). Is there any way a kiln can be converted or refurbished, or rewired in order for it to fire to a higher temperature?
