What Happens If You Don’t Fire Clay?

Firing clay too high can cause it to deform or even melt, too low and it will not be durable. Firing glazes too high can cause run-off on the pot, too low and they will be dry and rough. To fire to the right temperature, pyrometric cones are used.

Can you fire clay with a torch?
