Glaze Before Bisque

Recommended Posts

Being new to running my own kiln and having projects in a variety of stages, I accidentally glazed some of my pots that have not yet been bisque fired. Can I simply bisque fire them now and then fire them a second time to the appropriate cone for the glaze?

This is not called a 'bisque fire' any more. You have glaze on the vessels, you are going to be doing a 'one time firing'. You can not load the kiln as you would for a bisque fire. Be sure to keep space between the pots Do Not let them touch. Do Not nest them. If you allow them to touch even a 'little bit' they will stick together.

Keep them away from the walls of your kiln and be sure to put kiln wash on your shelves. You are now doing a glaze firing in which you must mature clay and glaze at one time. You will now be firing the ware to the maturation temperature of the glaze.

 

Fire low and fire slow, follow your firing schedule for a bisque fire however set the kiln to turn off at the recommended glaze temperature.
