I'm setting up in a studio with a polyurethaned bamboo floor. Which of these materials is best to put on the floor and under the kiln (that is on an 8" stand; firing to cone 10):
1) ceramic tile backer board? if so, what brand would be best for not transferring heat to the floor?
2) these 1" insulating firebicks: http://www.ebay.com/...S-/200900849899 ?
or a combination of both, backboard on the floor and kiln on top perhaps?
