open neck bottle slump
Hi. I'm very new to this. I'm still a virgin. I haven't even plugged in my kiln yet. (I thought the wiring was ready but it's not.) I've been reading and studying for a week now. I think I'm learning the book part but I know the real world will be different.
In my studies I've seen some slumped bottle bowls that have an open neck. Do you have to just get it timed right or do you put something in the neck to keep it open?
