Secondhand gas Kiln. The kiln has 3 shelves. Second firing of glazed pottery.
The picture above is my Kiln being delivered.
I glazed my pottery and put them in the kiln for two weeks, before firing. just waiting for a day to fire my pots.
Firing the kiln takes nearly the whole day.
The Glazer I used in this firing.
No143 Butter White.
Rutile Blur with 2 Cobalt Carb.
The firing was not hot enough some colours were great, glazers ran and stuck to the shelf, other burnt out .
I was very excited to see the results. turning plain clay dishes in to pretty colours. Every time there is different colour on each shelf.
Here are some of the results of the firing, the colours that came out.
The pot split. No change to the glaze.
This glaze was nice. the pottery dish was not compressed, uneven plate bottom. Made a different in the colour of the glaze.
Well that is all for this Gas Kiln Firing, second time firing pottery, might get a good firing, your pottery might crack ,watch your glaze colours change. you will never know until you try.
