Glaze unintentionally joined pieces

Recommended Posts

Help! I sat a pot on 3 kiln shelf supports thinking I would keep it from sticking to the kiln shelf.  It didn’t stick to the shelf but the glaze attached one of the kiln supports to the pot.  What can I do???  Could I retire the pot and elevate it more than the support and hope the support falls off during firing?  I’ve tried tapping and nothing has happened.  Any suggestions?

assuming  your clay an earthenware so that stilts are necessary?  

grinding it off with a tool, dremel hand held or standing grinder depending on the size of the blemish.   then you still have the decision about refiring.   maybe it would be better to make a new one depending on the complexity of the pot decoration and your available time and interest in saving it.   saving errors is also educational.
