I work for an artist who would like to use his Skutt KM ceramic kiln to do glass kiln casting. Skutt has said this is possible and the kiln will reach the correct temperatures however I have a few questions -
We have a lot of kiln shelves that we have fired ceramics on. I do not know if these are mullite shelves - is there a way to tell? Also, if they are not fully mullite will they break at high temperatures?
Also what type of sand is used to put on the mould shelves to level moulds? I've never purchased it myself and I'm not sure exactly what it is or where you can buy it in NYC.
Thanks for the help!
