Makeshift Drying Cabinet for Pottery - Studio Tip

I'm having better luck with the porcelain.  Actually it's not so much better luck, but learning to work with the quirks of porcelain. I used one of my metal racks and made a makeshift drying cabinet.

 Heavy plastic, packing tape and velcro... Voila :)

UPDATE:   After a year I scrapped the velcro. I converted the door seal to close with
 "rare earth" magnets instead.  I used packing tape to secure them.  It works fantastic!

Creating an environment where the piece can dry evenly is key. I haven't had one cracked or warped pot since I started using the drying cabinet.
