Glaze on fire bricks by Lindsay MacArthur
I wanted to know what kind of damage glaze can do to fire bricks on the bottom of my kiln. If there is no structural damage to the bricks or the kiln can I continue to fire with the drops of glaze there? I never load on the bottom so no wares would be touching it directly. Thanks for the...

humidity sensitive glaze by Jeremy Griffiths
Hi, I have a small commercially produced pottery ornament which has a glaze on it that changes colour depending on the weather (presumably depending on the humidity of the air), and am trying to find out the chemical/glaze that does this. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ventillation by Cappi8
I'm new at firing and need information regarding proper ventilation. I own a Skutt Kiln and will be firing in my basement. The kiln will be near a window so that I can vent out the toxic fumes. What exactly would I need to do to make sure that no fumes remain indoors. Thanks Jessica
