#Colnestoves#Kiln dried wood
With deadlines looming at large, we've been really working our kilns with back-to-back firings. ▫▫▫
This, is towards the end of last night's firing, when we 'reduce' the kiln carefully peeping through the green flames to check on the cones inside. ▫▫▫
We don't use a pyrometer at our studio and we work only with cones, which we find are much more reliable and fail proof.
Plus most pyrometers need electricity and given how notoriously fickle that is at our village studio, firing with cones is more practical too. Cause, the last thing you need at the end of a long firing is for the electricity to go out or an electronic snag to render a pyrometer useless - Cones, have no such issues! ▫▫▫
Of course, experience, is perhaps the most important tool when it comes to any part or process of handcrafted ceramics.
Infact, for a bisque firing we don't even use cones, relying purely on our experience, using the colour inside the firing chamber to gauge the approximate temperature. ▫▫▫
It's all to do with being full time potters - the more you work, the better you get.
And the better you get, the more work you get to do! ▫▫▫
