have also had success with re-firing for small defects. Bill and your friend may well be right if trying to do something big. The most common for us is when the glaze missed a spot. The glaze will run though so if say a mug ran just right in first firing then it may be too close to the bottom of mug to refire. Saving a couple bucks in material and ten bucks labor is not worth dealing with a glaze drip on kiln shelf. In addition to making sure no dust on bisque you might also consider firing to cone 5 and adding a 20-30 minute hold and use heat work to get to cone 6. That seemed to clear up a lot of glaze defects when we added this to our routine.
