mouse brown, cone 6, clay times, nov/dec. 2003 "for alisa"

updated mon 7 feb 05 on sun 6 feb 05


I was very curious about your firing schedule. I fire to cone six and hold for one hour at the very end of the firing. Once I hold for one hour at cone six, I fire down slowly from there.

What is your thought about firing down to 1475 and holding at the lower temp for one hour?

I was always hold at the top to burn out any unwanted materials. I have never met any one that holds at a lower temp.

I would be interested in trying it your way, but am curious to find out your reasoning behind it.

Thank you!
