Bisque fir­ing

ImagineFX - - Traditional Artist Workshop -

Pot­tery needs to be bone dry be­fore go­ing in the kiln for the first fir­ing – any mois­ture left in will heat up, ex­pand, turn to steam and make the pot ex­plode! Once I’m sure that they’re com­pletely dry, I care­fully load them into the kiln and fill up around them. This fir­ing is called ‘bisque’ or ‘bis­cuit fir­ing’.
