The kiln is back in business! It took more than one part, but thank goodness our local(ish) pottery store happened to have the 2nd piece in stock. I really don’t know what I’d do without my husband!
So I refired the pieces from the first aborted firing. Those got to about 1400 or so before the kiln stalled out. I wasn’t sure how they would do, but with one exception, they seemed not much worse for their prolonged journey. My friend Christi also makes her pottery here, and she had some very nice cordasecca plates come out! So after those came out, I immediately loaded a bisque firing, so glazing time again!
