STILTS - Ceramic and metal
Stilts are functional furniture to supports work such as plates and jars that are decorated with slip or glaze while being fired.
There are several types of stilts industrially made with a ceramic or metal product. There are two types one shaped like a “Y” and the other is circle, both have three vertical legs which overlap the main part underneath and above and both ends of each one are finely pointed. They are placed between the floor and the object, so that if the glaze runs it cannot adhere them together. If the object is slightly stuck, to separate them hold the work in one hand the stilt in the other and twist them in opposite directions.
