Pottery is not strong until it has been fired. When transporting your precious raw work it is best not to stack heavier, thicker pieces on top of lighter or thinner ones as this could cause cracking in the thinner pieces. This is a common hazard especially for plates. Also to avoid chipping, we recommend packing your work with fabric, such as old towels, to prevent the raw clay knocking against each other in the box.
Please ensure that the bottom, and a 5mm margin up the side, of your pieces are completely glaze free.
