I do not use kiln wash on my advancers. After an unfortunate flaking off
of considerable glaze in a cone 10 firing I was able to chip the glaze off
the shelves with a chisel and very little effort. My point - no kiln wash
needed on Advancer shelves in oxidation or reduction firing.
My question - is there anyone out there using Advancers in salt
firing? With or without kiln wash? Results of removing salt deposits on

The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts invested in Advancers for the salt kiln a
year ago. We love them! We do not use any kiln wash. Salt residue is easily
removed with a light passing over with a putty knife. A few firings ago, a
couple of pots were accidently loaded without wading. There was no issues
with them sticking to the shelves. The shelves have been through maybe 20
firings and they are like new.

Penland has a few advancers that we use in our wood kiln. The second
chamber is finished off with salt. We use a real thin wash and haven't had
any problems. I think the shelves have been in a soda firing or two as well
and all of them still look like new.
