Glaze firing beads

Pottery tip of the day:

Need something to fire beads on?

Just take a soft kiln brick and insert little pieces of nichrome wire through the brick, with about an inch sticking out each side. Do this as many times as you need on the brick. I usually think around 6 wires inserted through the brick. That will be 12 wires poking out to hang freshly glazed beads on. Set the brick in the kiln and/or raku kiln and fire.
