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!
Shop here for plate racks and tile stands for kiln firings. Like all of our stilts, these are implements that have been specifically designed to hold up your glaze work in the kiln, with added features that allow you to stack these stilts upon one another for maximum utilization of your kiln space. Because plates and tiles are so flat and short, it’s so much easier to stack the stilts that you set them on, instead of loading stack upon stack of shelf in your kiln.
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.
