lightweight kiln shelves
- October 18, 2011 at 5:28 am #9694
I need to get some new kiln shelves. And weight is a major factor J I have been reading about the nitride coated silicon carbide shelves. Does anyone have any experience with these in a glass kiln?
Any suggestions? Advice? What about the IPS (Dyson?) shelves? Where can I get them?

I just invested in a CoreLite kiln shelf – 16″ round, which I intend to use for the top shelf for kiln pressed glass. See info at:
and I’m sure they’re available lots of other places. It’s just like a normal kiln shelf, only a lot lighter, and because of the air channels it heats a lot more evenly.October 19, 2011 at 7:50 pm #12265
You’re right and I should have. It is for a Skutt GM1414 but I don’t need it to span the kiln. I do, however, need it to withstand pot melts.October 19, 2011 at 7:51 pm #12266
Thanks, I’ll follow up on that.
