Hello Dawn,
I regularly fire a mixture of pieces as you described - some greenware
and glazed and some biscuit fired and glazed. I treat the firing cycle
as if it is a biscuit firing, ie slow and vented to start up to 500
centigrade when I put the bung in. After that I treat it as a glaze
firing to suit the glaze(s) in question. Hope this helps.
