  1. I've had this idea every time I go to the beach and it finally dawned on me I could ask the clay internet. Can you soak a biscuit fired piece in salt water, let it get bone dry, and then fire it and have flashing/salt glaze? ideally a wood fired kiln to max out the texture/flash. I've had this idea for a few years now, and I can't test it because I'm in a community kiln at the moment. from what I've read once you add soda/salt to a kiln it's going to stay a bit of a soda kiln forever.
  2. I made a little convection kiln out of brick and adobe mud, with a base for ashes to fall, a wood chamber, and then space for shelves for the pieces. I was wondering if anyone has any experience making shelves for a low-fire wood kiln? I read somewhere that I could mix brick dust with clay and make slabs, has anyone tried it? I was also told only pine wood gets hot enough for a firing, but somehow I doubt this, any suggestions? Thank you, Quinoa
  3. I'm a beginner potter and I've tried wood firing pottery outdoors because an electric kiln is not very accessible for me. My small kiln is about a bit bigger than 2'x2'x2' and made from regular red bricks with a regular grill grate halfway to place pottery. As you can probably tell, it has terrible insulation and I can never get it to a high enough temp to fire glazed pottery. I can bisque fire and it works but It never gets hot enough to melt glaze, even the low fire glazes I use. I really don't want to ditch this project because I've already put so much time and material into it but I don't have the time/material to build a much bigger kiln or spend days firing. I also don't have a huge budget. What fairly inexpensive materials I can use to insulate my small kiln so that it can comfortably reach cone 06 and complete a glaze firing? I've looked into getting ceramic fiber board to line the inside of the kiln with, fire bricks are very expensive and probably out of my price range. Any advise from someone with more experience in this field would be very appreciated, Thank you!

    This handbuilt bottle form shows the marks left by Josh Query's "manmade "seashells". The mix is 50% plaster, 50% whiting, and salt water to mix the stuff up with. Josh wanted shapes of marks that were more rectilinear than what naturally happens with scallop shells. Was fired in the spring 2017 firing of New Hampshire Institute of Art's #Fushigigama. Was in the last rear stack of shelves.
