Are you a potter? Can you help me work something out? Or let me know if I am on the right track?
I am starting with a terracotta that vitrifies at 1150C between cone 01 and cone 1, and a glaze I have tested before at cone 04 with colorant combinations I like so will use that, expecting some difference at higher temp. The glaze will go from cone 04 to cone 02.
With the test I did in previous post, I think the probe is reading a bit lower than the heat work the cones actually had. If I take it to cone 01 and it ends up with more heat work I could end up with a puddle of clay and will likely have a puddle of running glaze.
To be safe on both counts I have decided to go with cone 02, what I am questioning now though, is whether or not I should go closer to vitrifying with a higher firing glaze, and what the impact is of not doing so is?
