8th Kiln and glazing

Finished glazing and set my 8th kiln. As usual glazing caused me real problems. Not sure whether it is the glaze-blue crystalline , or the clay-white s/w. Did want to fire the bisque at lower temp but for one reason and another that did not happen. So is that the reason why the glaze doesn’t seem to fit? I always glaze the insides of big bowls first and leave overnight before doing the outside and despite a huge stir the first bowl was covered in ‘bits’. I did re sieve which helped. Must remember to do that every time. Anyway we will see how it turns out. Had a number of white bowls etc, in fact too much for the kiln. The bowls are too wide so I need to try and remember to make some small stuff to fit around it. Kiln out Thursday.
