i am sure that tom would not fake the firing.
he has a lot of integrity.  but, it would not be
very hard to fire that batch and get 100 percent red.
i just did it for a set of very red dishes.

i put that pix on facebook a couple of months ago.

it still goes back to how you downfire, go through the
cooling cycle a couple of times.

pete pinnell did some wonderful experiments with red.
at 1750 he could see that white glaze get red spots, then
more and more as it cooled...then the entire pot was red.
it is interesting stuff to deal with.
