  1. I am a total beginner. I just had a pot fired with cobalt glaze - left the inside unglazed. The guy that helped me with this was in a great hurry to get it done and I didn't get a chance to write/paint, etch, stamp (?) a few words of text on it. Just wondered if there was any way I could paint, write or even some way of doing a 3D addition (with some material or other + crazy glue...?) It is for decorative use only. Sounds pretty crazy, I know. Any thoughts? -Thanks!

    You might try slicing almost all the way through the pot when it is almost leather hard, let it dry further then slice all the way through. Make sure you low fire for a couple hours...OR.... put it in your oven and take it from 100F to 350F in 3 hours....Slow drying will help it to not crack further . Cathy Thanks Cathy - That sounds manageble for me!

  5. Make crack in vase

    Thanks Cathy - that sounds manageble for me! Hi - I am making my first coil pot - a bowl or maybe a vase - (I am new to this) and wanted to put a decorative crack penetrating the entire thickness (preferably just one if that is possible). I saw a youtube video of someone using a small hammer after it had been fired(?). The sides looked thin (maybe done on a wheel?) and she made a bigger crack than I would want to do. Should I think of switching to slab to control thickness? Would it be possible to cut the vase in 2 pieces and either intentionally put them back together unevenly before firing, or firing the 2 pieces and then gluing them back together unevenly? It would be a decorative piece and doesn't need to hold water. As you can see I know nothing about this so any info would be helpful! Thanks- PS- Here is a pic of the feeling I want for the pot, but maybe just one crack going up the bowl or vase.
