for greenware:
When a piece is being fired in a kiln and reaches the temp for that particular clay, do you stay on that temp for a while or does it drop down and cool off?

Does that make sense?  Basically, is there a hold in temperature?

Nope, the first firing is pretty basic. It won't hurt to let it sit for 20 minutes or something, but you don't really have to. Once that cone is down, you're good.
