Identification mark or number is needed on the base of your pots, a spot of wax on the mark will keep the glaze away and your work identifiable for the kiln fairies to charge your account.
Please make your pots with an adequate foot ring and waxed bottom to protect our new silicon carbide shelves. We are firing to cone 10 so check the firing range of the clay you are using. For example, BRT fires up to 1280 degrees so is not suitable as it will leave deposits of trachyte on the shelves.
