Re: drying clay projects in the kiln

    If you are running the kiln anyhow, I've had great luck with just
placing the pieces on top while firing-(works well for drying plaster, too).
My colleague places pieces on top of kiln posts laid on their sides on top
of the kiln-which allows for air to circulate, but I've never had a problem
with them placed directly on top. If you aren't firing other items, I
suppose run it on low with the lid propped for several hours and then allow
to cool-like over a weekend-if you've time-or go onto the firing cycle.
