Where was the decoration you washed off ... There or on the wide body?

I sponged off the slip but it did get damp....not wet but damp. It appeared dry before I fired. I did a slow bisque. I was just shocked to see how that cracked up. I have never seen that before and I have been teaching and working in clay for 40+ years.
I think you both are right about the stress of two bodies and probably how the water affected the two as well.
I thought it was a pretty amazing crack up. A second pot that I cleaned off the same way did not have any problems...sp I am thinking the 2 types of clay had a differential in their absorbency if that makes sense.

*Not to say I fully agree, the article was pointing out the disagreement between 'artists' and 'craftsmen', and how those distinctions can be superficial. But, I'm digressing from the thread...
