Most glass kilns are rated to only 1700 degrees F (cone 08/09) and not intended to hold close to that temperature for extended times.

Certainly some helpful suggestions, thank you.  I went back and reviewed discussions about the soda wash described by Chris Campbell.  Does this flux to an extent it would result in sticking to a shelf if used on the bottom of a piece in a cone 6 firing?

 

And a similar question with underglazes as, in my experience, some flux to a certain degree.  If using underglazes on the bottom/against the shelf should one be attentive to choosing those that fire to a matte finish?

Thanks Marcia.  I'll track down those I am not yet familiar with.  Having been enlightened by many of your responses on the forum I look forward to your dvd.

Thanks for the safety warnings.  I assure you safety of person and property will get full and proper attention at all times.

Thanks for the thoughtful replies.  I thought that might be the case.  

 

Can anyone suggest a book or reference source that gives a technical description of raku glaze behavior ie. at what temperatures various reactions occur, how rapidly does cooling have to happen to maximize color effects, etc.?  So far I've mostly come across the "do it this way" descriptions.
