Small Cones are commonly used in the Kiln-Sitter®. Their tapered shape allows some flexibility to adjust shut-off when the user places the thinner or thicker portion of the cone under the sensing rod.
Small Cones can also be used as miniature witness cones on a kiln shelf where space is limited under these requirements:
- They need to be mounted at an 8-degree angle in cone holders or plaques.
- A length of 15/16-inch of a cone needs to be exposed above the cone holder.
- NOTE: They deform at about 9°F after Large or Self-Supporting Cones of the same number.
To determine the best maturing temperature for your ware, we recommend using three cones for firing: One cone for the desired maturing temperature, one cone right below the temperature, and one cone right above the temperature.
THIS IS CONE 8.
Fifty cones per box. Each cone approximately 1-inch tall.
