Kiln packing is a job that has to be done carefully and efficiently, one needs a lot of kiln furniture so you can easily build and pack the levels.

This kiln holds seven single stands for tiles 15×15cm on each of the two floors and on top there are four loose tiles of different sizes. Each stand hold 14 tiles and on the bottom floor there are small stands which hold corners and borders.

There is nothing more pleasing finding that everything in the kiln has been fired correctly.
The photos show tiles before and after firing so you can appreciate the change of colors.
