In Topic: Sprig Fell Off While Glazing

Might depend on where the sprig is located; on a vertical surface/plane, the glue may burn off before the glaze starts to melt.  On a horizontal surface/plane, it may stay in place.  There are bisque menders available, but that would require that you rebisque the ware to make sure you get a bond that holds.

You'll need  to test the clay.  It might be suitable as a clay body, likely low-fire unless you add to it.  Isculpt, another forum contributor, uses native clay for pit firing.  It might also be suitable as a glaze or glaze ingredient.  Make a few small pinch pot cups from a known clay, then test fire a sample in the cups at bisque and glaze temperatures.

While the oven is heating the pizza, spray the inside of the pot with an aerosol adhesive, then spray the inside with your glaze. By that time, the pizza should be done. Others suggest using a spray starch.
