What's the best way to prop or support a sculpture in a glaze firing to prevent slumping? I know greenware props made from the same body as the work are commonly used to prevent slumping/warping during a bisque firing. But what about slumping during the subsequent cone 6 glaze firing? If I use a bisqued prop under a glazed part of the work in the glaze firing, how can I keep the prop from fusing to the sculpture. Figure a sculpture about 10" - 12", made from a Laguna cone 5/6 porcelain (no grog), bisqued to cone 07, glazed with a commercial cone 5/6 glaze, then to be glaze fired to cone 5/6 in an electric kiln. Any ideas would be most appreciated.
