Anything is possible but refires for me rarely work out as the glaze and clay have transformed themselves in the first firing. That said, if you have nothing to lose ...... I occasionally have fixed something using lowfire glaze (cone04) when an aesthetic issue. I am assuming this is a cone six fired ware.

In my experience, I have found that re-firing will probably change the characteristics of the glaze outcome unless the glaze is pretty basic. Here are a couple of pix of a bowl that had a defect which I tried to repair. The second firing caused other problems, but you can see where the glaze is different in the 2nd firing.840610506_1Favesm.jpg.efa0046458894c50445acdc8f4ad46e4.jpg668821283_01Secondfiringsm.jpg.f4d9c20e6ef685d34a91a3f1109b6065.jpg

i refire more often than others might.  if there are several pieces i use a cone lower firing and that usually works.    read "usually" as not always.   sometimes i think it is placement in the kiln.  use cool spot if you have one.
