Fired the Bailey glaze kiln in 10 hours 35 minutes with 20 minutes reduction at the end. Using self-supporting Orton cones (9 & 10) with cone 10 at 3 o’clock position at the bottom peep hole when stopped firing. Temperature at the highest was 2280 F and at the end of firing (and reduction) was 2260 F. Very full load with 5 layers of shelves and was surprised that the firing went so fast.

Rolled out 4 slabs (7″ x 36″ x 3/8″) using recycled Death Valley clay for an order of vases. Formed the vases and will attach the bottom tomorrow.
