To Refire Or NOT to Refire – That is the question!
My last firing resulted in glazes that were not quite mature, so I decided to put them back through the kiln and see if I couldn’t improve them. To some, I sprayed on a bit more glaze, but I didn’t add any more copper red. Interestingly, I did reduce the firing – but at 950 degrees celcius – not the 750 degrees or 850 degrees that I usually do…and I got even better copper reds. So….what the hey! You just never know! Copper Reds are an illusive beast!
The results were pretty good, so thought I’d post a few pics. Better to refire than take the hammer to them if they can be improved. If they still look awful, then I bash them!
