What causes a kiln shelf to crack down the center during a glass firing?
You shelf may have cracked down the center due to thermal shock. A heated mass on the center of the shelf can crack the shelf if the kiln is cooled too rapidly. That is why it is a good idea to place small posts between the kiln shelf and a slumping mold.
