I put my slabs in as soon as I have finished unloading the previous batch. I use coils to ease the shock of a hot shelf.

when you fire to a hotter temperature the clay shrinks another 7% or so depending on the clay The slits do not shrink. This causes the warping and other problems. The metal can get soft at that temperature as well.

depends on the type of stilt.



In Topic: Large Flat Pieces Cracking During Glaze Firing

I make sun ray patterns with the coils for the foot to rest on. they can move but mainly they let moisture escape.

I fire my flat slabs upright leaning against stacked shelves or bricks.


In Topic: Qotw: Are You A Thrower Or A Hand Builder?

That's a tough one. I like them both. Stones. 

ANd for the technique...I go back and forth, I enjoyed building large pieces, but my curiosity has taken me back to throwing pieces for alternative firing. I want to develop forms by hand building for alternative firings. 

Hopefully, it will come. It really depends on where my attentions are focused to figure out which is the appropriate vehicle. Combinations can be interesting too.
