    Default To quench or not to quench...

    ...that is the question!

    I need to fire a piece made of Prometheus white bronze clay, it contains a Cubic Zirconia.

    I am aware that the stone is already set to dice with death in the kiln; is quenching going to secure it's fate? Bronze clay does call for annealing, can it be avoided?

    Thoughts appreciated!

    The consensus is that stones crack if cooled suddenly from hot, so I for one have never done the experiment. Your call. Dennis.
