  1. I need some advice about preparing pots for a wood firing. All of my experience has been with making and glazing pots for electric kilns firing to Cone 6. I will soon have the opportunity to put some pots in a wood kiln for firing. Does anyone have any tips for me in terms of how to prepare the pots? (I know, of course, that I need to make the pieces using Cone 10 clay.) In particular -- I think I have read that the ash from a wood firing can itself make a glaze on an otherwise un-glazed pot. Is that correct? Should I put some in without glaze? Should I try some of my reliable home-made Cone 6 glazes and see what happens in the higher temps? What can I do to maximize my output from this rare (for me) opportunity to do a wood firing?
