I lost my electric connection to the kiln and had to have in reinstalled, this meant that I needed to be upgraded to a huge metal meter box, in the meantime all the armoured cable was stolen from the triple phase spur so this had to be replaced too.
First firing I thought was going to be easy, but I overfired by 100 degrees leaving the contents very strongly fired and potentially a problem to glaze. With no other choice other than to take a hammer to them I went for the dip and glazed them. With a heavy heart the kiln went back on. Surprise result last night to see them absolutely perfectly glossing and without a blemish in sight.
So, do I do this method again? I think I might. For the potters: 1107 °C for the biscuit and 1107 °C glaze! Shouldn’t have worked, but it did.
