4.3 Firing Clay

Firing Ceramics

In general, 

Normal Bisque Firing for thin or slip casting works can go up to 100C per hour until 600C, after that put on full power 150C/h.

Bisque Firing for thick or sculpture works should not go more than 50C per hour until 600C, after that put on full power 150C/h (mush sure soak around 90C to allow moisture release.)

Glaze Firing if work already bisque, can go up to 125C until 600, after that put on full power. Unless a special glaze effect might need a hold in higher temperatures.
