So our kiln is broke. I saw it coming when I did the last bisque firing. It went straight to “high”, not staying in the low and medium settings at all. But they seemed to be OK when done, and I figured the glaze firing was just the high setting anyway, so hoped for the best. Well, it never got above about 1400 degrees. The pieces looked almost exactly like they did when I put them in there. Darn. Darn. My husband took apart the control/switch box on the front and decided that was the problem. So we ordered a part. Waiting for it to arrive…..
