This is my 5th firing or so with glaze. I'm using Cone 6.
Yesterday I started my typical glaze firing however I'm having
problems getting the kiln up to temp.
Here's my process:
Cone 6 into my sitter
Bottom 2 peep holes plugged
Top peep hole open
250F - 1 Hour
1676F - 2 Hours
1926F - 2 Hours
2200 - 3 Hours
Usually during that 3 hour time period my kiln sitter will shutoff and
it's all done. This time however, it's been going for about 11 hours
and it's till not turning off.
Should I close up the top peep hole? Should I open up all? Is it
getting enough oxygen? VERY NEW to this.
