Kiln shelf vs steel...

Hey Kurt,
I ve never tried the kiln shelf method only a flat plate of steel. When I try the kiln shelf I ll write back and give you my own observations. With the Monkey bread plates I make I ve had some luck keeping the glass clean as long as I avoided the wash. However I am beginning to think fron David P's reply that applying the kiln wash is as crittical of a step as everything else. The steel plate is heavy even for the size of pieces I make. This heaviness also makes it hard to keep from rotating the pole when the cane or other glass is on the surface because it is so awkward to handle. The kiln shelf is considerably lighter. So as soon as I can get the necessary pieces together for this new technique I will write you back.
