|Brown ash run that was a little matte|
|Coating on the ash on the shelf|
|Ash settled in the bottom of an ash-glazed dish that did not flux out or melt|
|Dry ash on the edge of a decorated dish|
|Spotting in the glaze|
|Glaze separation/split in the bottom of a dish|
So here are my questions:
Should I salt earlier in the firing and then soak the kiln to cone 11 in order to flux out the ash?
Should I not crash cool the kiln?
Should I insulate the kiln even more in order for it to take longer to cool (more than 2 days)?
Why is the ash not melting out on the glazes or remaining in dry patches on pots?
Should I use a different liner glaze? If so, does anyone have any recommendations that isn't an ash base for single-firing?
