Please document any ceramic pitting issues here. Make sure to put glaze and clay type.

This piece pitted very bad.

Clay body Soledate

This is a great idea! I think this is a great project for you to take on.

Sooooooo… Strictly based on what I read on the Amaco FB page, we’d also need to know when (and where) they were bisqued. And, at least we’ve got the pics of the kilns so we can see what shelf they were on in the bisque kiln.


We have determined that a Gatsby, the large kiln, is not getting near to temp in the bisque process. I thought I posted the kiln pic in the Ceramics thread but it was in the firing teams thread.

We will not use the kiln until the elements are replaced.

Left to right is top to bottom shelves.



Johnny, do you have any pics

Here are some of our pittings. I don’t think I need to put all, just to show that it has been going on for a while. Not just mine, Steve’s also.
