This is what my kiln looked like this morning.

Typically I load beads from the right side of the rack and work my way over to the left side. When I get there I take the bead on the right side of the rack and move it all the way to the right of the kiln, making space on the rack for the next bead.

I have some ceramic tiles on the right side at the back on which I rest the tip of the mandrel so the bead doesn't touch the floor of the kiln.

As I move down the rack to the left again I move the beads over to the right and when I have one layer down I start stacking. I hope that makes sense.

(The rack would usually be full at the end but I made some bellflowers and needed the space to pop them in.)
