    Did my first pot melt the other day.  What a disaster.  I used a steel ring, lined with fiber on a vermiculte shelf coated with at least 15 coats of primer.  Fired according to a moderate schedule up to 1700 with proper annealing.  After cooling the melt looked great.  Then — disaster.  My beautiful glass had fused to the shelf.  AND I MEAN FUSED.  My first attempt to get the glass off took the shelf with the glass.  Can anyone tell me what happened.  I did not use thinfire because I understand it can contaminate the glass.  Yikes!
