Photo Information for Sculptural Raku Piece

The shaft on that spear isn't clay... is it?  Your idea of loweing them into the kiln on a pre-bisqued platter sounds like it would prevent breakage. Getting them out is another matter. I would just bite the bullet and use the tongs to grab them by the torso rather than any wires that might break or tip them over.


Good luck to you!

Bob, the whole spear is indeed clay. It is removable, I had it in place for the sake of the photo. Currently, it is laying next to the sculpture, and will be fired separate, at least for the bisque.

Initially I was going to slip it in place, or glaze it in place later, but being as it is easily breakable, I figure, by not attaching them, I can always make another later, if the first is broken.
