Hello all, My dad would like to set up a small studio with a medium-sized (18-22" or so) electric kiln for firing mid-range ceramics. He is in Northern PA close to Binghamton, NY.

Also, is it safe to stack cone 6 stoneware plates without warping (slow fired of course) I’m fairly new to mid fire clay bodies Thanks! Asmaa
