low fire clay molds

thomas decker

thanks  I just fired my second mold and it came out really well  so the blowing apart problem seem to be solved But I am still wondering about a firing schedule  the one I used seems to be excessively conservative and I am wondering if it really needs to be.  the pieces that I am making are about the size of a platter and about 3/8″thick the schedule used  was 80to 180 hold 3-4hr  150-500-hold10min  200-1000hld 10 – 300-1798 off  I know they say if it’s not broke don’t fix it , so  I quess that I am looking for some conformation that I am on the right path or did I just get lucky?
