Tom Fuhrman is on a distinguished road
Years ago when I was at Penland, Paul Stankard and Dudley were both teaching, They tried a collaboration using the SP from the furnace. The SP turned brown when it was torched and the piece was less than acceptable. That was using a straight propane torch and not an oxy/gas torch that I think would have reduced the problem. If you're planning on using an Exacta torch which is just straight propane you might have to be very cautious or switch to an oxy/gas torch. Just my $.02.
