Ceramics: Heart Mobile

I made these hearts a year ago--and they were a pain because I had to stilt them in the kiln because they are two-sided or glazed on both sides.  I used a Western low-fire red glaze which worked great on a piece I fired at a class at Skyline but burned out at my regular studio!  So only the large heart retained the red.  I re-glazed them and fired them again and still no color.  Later I was told by a ceramics teacher at my high school that red glaze is tricky, and I'm wondering if the fast firing perhaps leached the red out.
