We have had the same trouble in the past with oil lamps leaking. Now we
spray a coating of clear enamel on the outside bottom of the pots and
haven't had any trouble since.

Yes that's what we're using.We fire cone 10. All we spray is the outside
bottom of the pot. Not sure if clay body makes a difference. We've used it
on several different ones and it's worked great for us. Good

I also fire to cone 6 and make oil lamps. I have them in my home and
have several friends who "beta" test for me. I use the lamp liner that was
mentioned earlier from Axner Pottery Supply. (phone 800 843-7057) My clay is
^4-6 and ^6-8. I do not glaze the inside,(per instructions with the liner)
just the outside. After the glaze firing I fill the lamps with the liner.
I make sure the inside is coated and then I empty them and let dry. This
sometimes takes a few days! The liner dries to what appears like a hard
plastic finish. This has worked for me and you may want to try it.
(We recently had a power outage and had them all going...it was great!)
