  CERAMIC KILN SHELF KIT:     https://www.riogrande.com/product/pmc-kiln-ceramic-shelf-kit/703080

 

    ••• NOTE: I include this here, because if you’re ordering from Rio, it’s a convenient

way to order kiln shelves and posts. However, I prefer to use Solderite Boards for firing

my metal clay. This kit of shelves that Rio sells are heavy ceramic, and though more

durable than Solderite (also sold by Rio), are not necessary if you’re just going to be

firing a single shelf at a time. You can purchase the 1/2” kiln posts, that come with

this kit, through pottery suppliers (see Amazon and Clay King, this list).
