Can you fire plaster in a kiln?

You can fire certain plaster mixtures in a kiln. These mixtures are typically used for casting bronze or aluminum and they disintegrate upon firing.

Plaster disintegrates at a very low temperature compared to the high temperature kilns are capable of, so if you're trying to dry plaster molds or anything like that in your kiln I would not recommend it. I've also heard that firing plaster can create some toxic fumes.

What does clay become after it is fired?

Clay is generally fired in two firings: when unglazed clay is fired in a low firing, it is called bisque. In this state, the clay will still absorb water, but it will not dissolve.

Some clays vitrify (become glasslike) after high firing and don't need to be glazed.

What is the glaze used on pottery?

Glaze that is on pottery or ceramics is actually Glass. It is applied in it's raw form, as a liquid soluble on to the clay, and then fired in a kiln. At the proper heat, the glaze melts and reacts with the gases in the clay and flows. When proper maturity is reached for the glaze, the kiln is powered off and allowed to cool slowly. Glaze is used to seal and decorate the Pottery/Ceramic piece. There are many types of Glazes, but the most 2 popular types are Over Glaze and Under Glaze. Under Glaze, is mostly coloured clay, and its use is primarily for decorative designs. It is fired so that it is set and permanent to the clay, and then over glaze, perhaps Clear to seal the piece and in a second glaze firing. There is much much more to this, but this is as concise an answer for the question.
