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.
Before firing metal clay in your firing dish, we recommend that you pre-fire your dish and media to 1650F and hold for 1 minute to burn out any impurities from the media and binders from the dish.
This dish is also used for melting pot for gold/silver and scrap jewellery. It has a round bottom with a max temp. of 1204°C (2200°F).
