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!
Here you will find some of our specialty stilts, from our Bed of Nails stilts, which are great for propping pieces with unusual shapes, to our circle, ladle, and egg stilts. Although these stilts may appear to be a little different in shape from our standard series, we find them to come in handy when loading a kiln quite frequently! We suggest having a variety of these stilts in your kiln room for maximum versatility in loading.
All of our stilts are made here at The Ceramic Shop and are rated to cone 10. These long-lasting stilts are designed to withstand repeated firings and rugged treatment, and are made from the highest-quality materials.
