clay lamps

A few months ago I wrote in about ideas for making a clay lamp. Several
people wrote back with great ideas. I have been trying to make one with the
method of wrapping a slab around a cylindrical base. I have been using some
metal tubing found in the hardware store. My problem is when the clay is
wrapped it is fine but as it beginning to dry it cracks all the way down the
side. I have to wait until a certain point before I can take it off the
cylinder so that it will keep its shape Help, I have to make twelve of these.
Any suggestions?
