  1. I've been working on a piece that has a 6" tall, 3/4" wide cylinder and when I fire it with glaze it warps and bends slightly. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to prevent this? Should I do a solid coil instead of a tube? Some have advised inserting a wire or metal rod too but I've never used wire in my work before.
  2. Hi! I did my first experiment with glazing under my platter. I found an article that said to use a 3 inch stilt for a larger piece. Unfortunately it didn’t say to use at least two and place them on the ends of the piece. It warped of course at cone 5, I’m not sure that it still wouldn’t have warped. I just won’t glaze underneath anymore but I’m wondering if there’s anyway to save the platter now that both sides are glazed. Is there anyway to flatten it out without it sticking to kiln? Thanks -Newbie
