Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: glaze

Okay, so NOT every plate is perfect.
I knew that this one had a small hairline crack after bisque.
In my “usual” spot when I trim a bit too thin right along the foot ring.

But the crack looked small so I decided to give it a try…
loaded it up with glaze in hopes that it might fill itself in?! HA!!!
This trick almost never works!!!

I knew that, but thought I would share it for all of my students
who ask if they can get away with it… and the answer is still no. Sorry.
