ceramics repair question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm not sure if this forum is a good place to ask this or not. I was in Japan and bought this ceramic pot (actually a foot-warmer), it is about the size of a wok and has a lid. Anyway I dropped it on the way back, in it's box, and there is a crack going all the way down the side now. Is this thing repairable? I was thinking there may be some kind of fireproof ceramic glue that would work -- but maybe not. Anyone with ceramics experience know?

 

Thanks for any suggestions,

Bob

sorry, but i would personally say no, there is no repair for this piece...sounds like you have a nice-size structural crack in the vessel if it goes all the way down the side. even with re-firing the piece I doubt anyone could make a repair strong enough to warrant it being "safe" to use as intended. glue it back together and just admire it.

There is no firing method that can repair it back to new. The best you can do is epoxy it back together it, but it will not be functional.
