Is there one particular book that I could use to better understand bisque
firing and how it relates to clay body, other firings [refiring], glazing,

Also, I think that I will need to fire some of my scultpure in a saggar for
support - perhaps with vermiculite? Would I build a saggar out of a high
fire oven clay or ?? May need to fire the sculptures to cone 10 - do not
know yet.

Thanks tons.
