Re: Need firing help ASAP

Besides having to two shelves as close a possible, if you have any
stilts I would make sure to use them and a lot of them. What sometimes
also causes cracks it the residual heat. If you place it up that will
let the extra heat out. You can also use shelf legs.

I have students who have had to fire large flat plates/tiles that do
fit on one shelf in my kiln. If it strattles over a gap between the
half-shelves, it tends to warp or crack. Do I need full shelves
have) or can I push the two halves together tightly and make it work?
Other ideas?
Respond quickly if you can. I want to fire this PM.
