Reference —  Stilts
Triangular supports with either clay (for low-fire) or heat-resistant metal points (for low- or high-fire), used to support pieces of glazed pottery during glaze firing. They support the ware above the shelves to keep the glaze from sticking the ware to the shelf. Small stilt marks can be filed, sanded or ground smooth.
