If you are interested in completely covering your ceramic pieces with glaze -- even on the bottom surface -- but want to make sure that your work does not ruin your kiln shelves, you may want to try our cone 10-capable stilts. Stilts are specifically designed to allow you to load a piece of ceramic into your kiln with glaze on the bottom side. The glazed pot simply rests on top of the metal points on the top side of the stilt in the kiln. The stilt elevates the pot so that it is not in contact with the kiln shelf, and the metal points on the stilt, though in contact with the glazed piece, will not stick to the glaze. Now you can finally enjoy glazing whole pieces!

 

Our 4-pointed Star Stilts come in a variety of sizes to meet all of your firing needs. Great for propping tiles, plates, mugs, or bowls, these versatile high-fire stilts are also sold in varying quantities, from individual stilts to full grosses. Made here at the Ceramic Shop, these star stilts will be a welcome addition to any studio!
