Results and Second Try

The first glaze firing with the new kiln went better than expected, especially not having to get up and turn on the Envirovent fan at 4 AM — wi-fi enabled smart plug works like a charm!

Most things turned out pretty close to what they should have, but slightly over fired by about one cone.  (Click on the photos to enlarge)

All the cones for each shelf showed it overfired by about one cone, so the next firing I fired to one cone less (5) to see if it would give (6) results — and it seems to be so close that I’ll try to add a short hold at the end next time to see what happens.
