The new plates just came out of kiln yesterday. They turned out nicely. However, they were still slightly overfired.....too shinny. I replaced kiln elements from 240V to 208V about 3 weeks ago. They need to be re-calibrated by doing cone off set for correct firing result. Why it's never being easy to be a potter?!
I like this new process and the way it turns out. Now what? I am the new guy on the block, I need to look for places to sell my works now :)
