Cone 1 is exciting Lee, I am all for saving energy and time.
Do you have any cone 1 recipes I can try, or know where
to find some?
I've read your posts on the subject and
I read a lot on the web but have never ran across any hard
information on really low fire reduction firing.
Maybe a great idea for a new book?
Guess I'm going to study Ron Meyers.

I tested terra sig and had excellent results using redart. Grolleg
worked good too. Avery tended to flake off. I had good luck with
a white liner glaze I used from Chappel, but need to dig up my glaze
My tests were in electric. Pretesting before starting
experiements in cone 1 soda firing. But after my chat with Ron
Meyers and looking at his work, with him at hand to ask questions of,
I might consider his temp: cone 03.
I have shows coming up for the holidays so I can't continue along
those lines, but after November, I will do more experimenting.
I am inspired by some French woodfired earthenware Jaspe' work I
saw years ago. Meyers' work captures some of the same feel and also
humor in the decoration.
