Re-firing              

I wonder if re-firing makes the pots more brittle that convention would serve?

Would a dilatometer measurement of both provide less anecdotal survey?

Does cristobalite increase or decrease with that re-fire?

Is the pot which has been re-fired more subject to thermal shock?

Does it affect glaze fit?

Questions surface when we enter a new cave, but light does provide clarity one hopes.

That perches in the soul 
And sings tunes without the words
And never stops - at all!"
