Well the cone 1 kiln is done. I think I have found the secret. It is to simply fire the pots 5 times. The pots that are coming out are the best (prettiest) pots I have ever done. I will post some of them today. The dirt glaze was just OK so I re-glazed them with the chemical milky white and they are marvelous. I just mixed up a batch of cone 5 clay but am wondering if I shouldn't dry it out and re-mix it as cone 8. I am literally at a loss. Cone 5 is such a nice temp but the iron red doesn't come put-or maybe it does. An interesting direction of exploration just reared its head.
