    cracks in cake plates

    Its 1/3 inch thick where it meets the pedestal it looks thicker where its peeled from the pedestal I think. Fired to cone 8

    Bisque firing is 6 hrs to 600°c then fp to 900 with 20 min soak (this was preprogrammed on my kiln) that's a great ping pong tip thank you, I dont have any bisque ones atm but will try it on the next batch. As for the other concerns I can't see any discolouration or a ridge, maybe it's the photo? I used flecked clay maybe its that? Or my amateur eye

    I think it happened in cool down in that case, it also came off the shelf quite easily. It has peeled off a bit of the pedestal with it so it looks thicker. Firing was to 1260 with 30 min soak, I don't have a downfiring schedule should I?? I just leave it be until it's cool enough which usually takes 24hrs

    Yes, there's a pedestal underneath, its seems to have peeled off a bit of the pedestal with it so it looks thicker, it's 1/3 inch thick by the pedestal

  9. Hello All! I've been trying to make cake plates for a while in my new studio, they just keep breaking in the kiln and I can't figure out why. I've attached a photo from my sneak peak earlier, I dried it super slow and there were no signs of stress after bisque firing. My pottery dictionary doesn't seem to match this type of crack, so I thought I'd ask you wise people. Thanks in advance! Sarah
