David Hellman here,
I'm a student potter form good ole' Kentucky.
I've been accepted for a two week Anagama workshop at Arrowmont in TN
and i have been asked to bring some bisque fired pots. My question is
if i fire some pots along with a glaze firing to cone 6 (not ^06 like =
will they still be conductive to the ^10 wood firing. =20
Just wondering if i could do that. =20
any adivice would be greatly appriciated.

So you want to bisque to ^6 (just for the
convenience of the kiln-sharing), then put
it into an anagama firing? Should work just
fine if you are going for just the natural
bare wood-fired look.
If you plan to use glaze, it won't stick
really well to the ^6-fired clay, but if you
add a little glue to the glaze and/or handle
it gently in loading (to keep the glaze from
flaking off), it will fire OK.
