ramp it down slow baby oh yeah...

off to pot..more to come....so..i had some disasters with the large platters...lost two huge ones in the bisque(weren't dry, my impatient ass), and four that "popped", dunted..during cooling.. i have figured out the firing issue, which i hope will resolve the thermal shock and awe shit that has been occurring, causing me much distress. haha. the current firing i am slowly going through the 900-1100 degree f. phase, both in the heating and cooling. also controlling the cool down, not allowing for it to cool faster than 150 per hour! talk about a long bisque fire..try 25 hrs!
