Thanks Teapot.

Just to update. I went ahead and slumped the basketweave blank in a bowl mold to give it shape. It came out pretty good. Unfortunately, on the bottom side, there are a couple of cracks. The cracks don't appear to put the structural integrity of the piece at risk.

Here are a few pictures.

I am firing a new blank in the kiln right now. I'll probably post that one later.

P.S. I want to give PinkyK the credit for picking out the color palette used. I am typically really bad with colors, and sometimes she needs to pick out my clothes for me, to make sure I am presentable.

You could use fire bricks lined with sure fire paper.  It would hold the pieces in place and you may be able to achieve the votive holder you were looking for.
