Lots of different ways to do this depending on where it is going.
You can put a thin piece of paper between the support and the sculpture.
You can paint some wax resist on the support so it will not adhere.
Even if it seems stuck after firing, a gentle tap will free it.

As Chris tells you, use some paper between the support and the sculpture, some newspaper will do.
Or you can use a clay that is more dry than the one your are working with, use some clay powder between the support and the sculpture and that will do. No sticking and not too much shrinking.
If you build the arms in the precise moment you won't need a support at all. It all depends on the type of clay you are using.
