The next batch of items are in the kiln ready for my second ever glaze firing tomorrow. This includes the cups that I threw a few weeks ago. I’ve been doing a lot of research on how to slow down the cooling part of the cycle in the hope that I don’t end up with the same result as last time. I have also bought a handheld pyrometer and probe so that I can gauge more accurately the speed at which the kiln is heating and cooling.
If all goes well I will post the results and the firing schedule I have used on Monday.
