Small ceramic firing dish, perfect for supporting metal clay pieces during sintering. Fill the dish with alumina hydrate or vermiculite to cradle and support your domed, hollow, sphere & 3D pieces. These pieces need a bit of support during firing to prevent slumping, flat spots or collapse.
You can also use these dishes with carbon and make a simple lid using the no-flake firing foil.
Ceramic firing dishes and containers will last for ages and keep your kiln nice and clean.
Before firing metal clay in your firing vessel, we recommend that you pre-fire your dish and media to 800C and hold for 1 minute to burn out any impurities from the media or any possible binders or left-overs from the manufacturing of the dish.
This dish is also used for melting pot for gold/silver and scrap jewellery.
