What Is The Best Way To Glaze Fire Plates/platters?

Recommended Posts

Mart    23

I need to glaze fire a pile of plates. Problem is, only one plate fist per kiln shelf so I end up having more shelves (in weight) than plates.

Is there a better way to do it because this feels like a such a waste.

Thank you bciskepottery for the link. Plates and platters are not part of our product list but maybe we need to change that. :)

Those guys are closer to us. http://www.ipsceramics.com/setters.php

Now I need to find someone in EU mainland. Germany perhaps.

 

Ouch... Looks like those cost as much (or more) than kiln shelves.

For glazing--I just used a garbage can lid to put the glaze in. Then I dip my platter, holding the edges with both hands and swirl like I'm panning for gold. You leave fingerprints, but I really enjoy those so it's a plus for me.
