  • First tiny pot with attached legs to survive firing in the microwave kiln! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I've mentioned before, firing in the microwave kiln is tricky because it gets so hot so quickly. This means that even the tiniest bit of moisture doesn't have a chance to migrate out of the clay slowly and as soon as it reaches boiling point, it causes an explosion. With attached legs, there is added moisture with the slip (clay mixed with a bit of water) used to 'glue' them on. Apparently even baking them in the oven for a couple of hours at 90 C isn't enough to burn off this extra moisture - which seems crazy given how tiny the pot is and how thin the clay! Anyway, I have found that slowing the bisq (first) firing down by using minimum power and doing lots of short bursts, slowly building up the power/time is helping. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This little leggy pot was just stained with red iron oxide ❤️
