Todd Pletcher has been experimenting with his cooling cycle!

“Besides the great results I get from layering, I have found that altering the firing schedule by down-firing my kiln, can create even more complex and beautiful glaze results!

I generally take the kiln up to 2195° and then start slowly down-firing to 1900°. The down-firing takes a few hours with ‘holds’ programmed in a few different places. It’s taken me a while to find the results that I desired…just eperiment and Have Fun!
