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.

We are getting ready to mount the piece on wood. What would be the best adhesive choice?

I know I've seen JB Weld mentioned frquently by someone (Mark?).
