Kiln furniture isn't for sitting. It's for holding shelves in a kiln. This is where John stores his furniture between firings.
This is for plates. The posts hold the plate stand and then we can stack two/three plates in one space. Very handy when we're filling a dinnerware order.
Posts on the floor of the kiln. These will probably stay here until the next firing.
And here is a pile of cone packs.
Cone packs hold pyrometric cones that measure accurately the temperature in the kiln. John uses cone packs and a pyrometer and the color of the flame when he looks into the peep hole to manage his firing. I like to think the cone packs are a kind of art.
I love these.
