Help! I make slab rolled coloured porcelain forms, with uneven thicknesses.

Perhaps because of this, there are a few splits which appear after the (only) firing. Cone 6, 7.

Would controlling and perhaps slowing down the heating and cooling process help diminish the chance of this splitting?

Chris should chime in here. She fires and dries her pieces in supports like bowl forms. If I see here this morning I will ask her to respond. We are at NCECA.
