Sometimes when making ceramic ducks ...... well most people fry their ducks at somewhere between 300 and 500 degrees. I don't fry ducks. I fire ducks (it's a management technicality) . When I fire ducks, I heat them to about 1800 deg. Sometimes the ducks, in the heat of the moment, get scared and stick together.
If you've ever been fired and your temperature did not rise to 1800 duckgrease, you are able to keep your cool better than most ducks!
