In Topic: Large Flat Pieces Cracking During Glaze Firing

25 May 2015 - 07:55 PM

How close together/dense should the coils be so that the bottom is sufficiently supported and does not distort on the glaze firing (for a mid fire stoneware clay)?  Should the coils be kiln-washed to prevent sticking?

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.
