Mounting the slab on a round piece of plywood on the back would give it stability and allow for wall hanging. The plywood backing could be a bit bigger and painted to serve as a border, or just match the size of the slab.
You and your student did a terrific job. His art work is wonderful; the firing job well done.
Great thought, Bruce, on the plywood backing, could even be a frame edge, also easier to hang.
Yeah, a wood mount is kind of what I was thinking as well. The display, initially, was to use a specially made "plate" stand. Since the coloring has a nice rustic look, I suggested, that the stand also have a similar look. I thought, about taking a torch to the wood, to give it such a look. With a wood backing, the same could be done to that.
What kind of glue is recommended?
Great effort Benzine, whew, what a relief!
Like th idea of backing and hanging.
Best with the repair job.
Thank you much.
What a great project. Your student should be very happy with this, and proud.
We are both happy with the results. I plan to enter it, in a couple of the art shows we have coming up.
