Emiliek Posted January 11, 2021 Report Share Posted January 11, 2021 Hello all- I’m new to pottery, been at it for about a year, and got my own kiln a couple months ago! It’s a skutt, no idea what model but it’s made in 1986 I think. Anyways- it’s been working great! I started my glaze firing tonight at cone 6- I usually prop the lid for an hour or two on low and close the lid and put peepholes in for another hour, medium for 3 hours and then high till finish. Well silly me I had the dials at high and not on low accidentally! Went to check on it after an hour and a half and then realized my mistake! so I didn’t really know what to do, I figured putting it back on low wouldn’t help and if any damage was done it has already been done.. I switched it to medium and put the lid down. Now will continue the normal firing schedule of 3 hours on medium and then switch to high to finish. my question is- what would you do in that situation? Would you have just stopped the firing and redo it after it’s cooled? Would cooling it cause more damage to the glazes? Hoping I made the right call and can update tomorrow but was hoping to hear what others would do incase I ever mess up again! Thanks!
