In this study we focused mostly on tripods which is the most well known and encountered group of kiln materials in producing medieval wares. Tripods are a kiln material which is placed between vessels to prevent their sticking when wares are put to kilns to be fired. Their paste is harsh and red. During Middle Ages different tripods are used in discrete areas and periods. Generally we can gather them into three groups as in a triangular, circular and rectangle form. These types are separated into minor groups among each other. There are motifs and compositions described as craftsman sign (stamp) under the surface of the ones that are in a triangular form.
