I was asked to let clayart how my glaze firing went after
the overlong, open lidded bisque fire.

Everything came out exactly as expected. I am
very relieved :-).

This is the 92nd firing of this kiln on all original parts.
Is this normal? I have no idea how many firings to expect
before needing to change elements. Bisque and glaze
firings take approx. 1 hour longer than when the kiln was
shiny new, but no change in results. The change happened
slowly over the 4 years. I have a back-up element (bought
it with the kiln) to keep Murphy at bay!
