Shoulderheads can be a problem in the kiln. Two weeks ago I had a waste shoulder/head, Pope John Paul II. Instead of putting it on a post, I turned it upside down like a dome head, leaning the back shoulderplate part against the kiln wall. Much to my delight, I had a perfect firing. I poured three more heads and tried it again with the same good results.
