I have gotten a few questions asking what happens when you fire low fire clay to the temperature we glaze fire (cone 6)? This is what happens:
What kind of damage does this cause to our shelves and equipment? This kind of damage:
Please do not bring any low fire clay into Ceramics to be fired at DMS. Our firing team has no way of knowing just by looking at it. No low fire clay means no low fire clay. It’s a Committee rule. If you are not sure if your clay is low fire, please ask someone or simply DO NOT USE IT. We explain all of this in our Ceramics Orientation 100 - Welcome to Ceramics! class. Please sign up as it is a required class to be able to use the area. This was voted in a Committee Meeting and passed unanimously by all committee members that attended.
