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 B series stilts are all-purpose three-point Roselli stilts and available in many sizes. These stilts differ from our A Series in the number of wire contact points that are installed on each stilt’s arms. While the A series stilts features a tri-point design and one metal wire piece for support on each arm, the B series features a row of multiple wire pieces on each arm. This feature makes the B series great for propping up flat fully-glazed items that may have a tendency to slump if supported in just a few spots -- think tiles and flat plates. The multiple contact points also make the B series a good choice for supporting smaller, but heavier, works.
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.
