Uneven Heating Effects
If the glass is heated unevenly, it can lead to bubbles between the shelf and the glass, causing large bubbles with thin structures, if not actually burst. This can happen especially with side or side and top firing kilns. The solution to this is to [baffle] the edges of the glass from the direct heat of the elements.
