Stilts are specifically designed to allow you to load a piece of ceramics 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. The marks left by the high temperature wire can be easily removed with a Stilt Mark Stone.
All the silts are made at The Ceramic Shop and are rated to cone 10. Their stilts are designed to withstand repeated firings and rugged treatment. These stilts are made from high quality materials and are long-lasting.
