"We know them best for their stone tools and intrepid mammoth hunting. But new discoveries in Croatia suggest that ice age humans made evocative ceramic art far more regularly than once believed."
"They are 15,000 to 17,500 years old — the first European evidence of ceramic art after the ice sheets stopped spreading."
"Tantalizingly, several of the Croatian pieces feature the imprint of a finger, perhaps left there when the artist tried to smooth wet clay."

I bisque at Fast Glaze, to ^04, then fast glaze to ^5/6.
I always assumed that the bisque firing was just to burn out the nasties, (and water!), and make the clay mature enough to handle.
