Try roughing up the plexi where it won't show behind the piece. You might even try drilling a few shallow holes at a slight angle. this will give the epoxy something to bond to.Rough up the back side of the porcelain also. Epoxy will bond if it has a rough enough substrate. A glass artist here in Santa Fe used 5 min epoxy to bonds 2" blocks of plexi to ten pound glass pieces and hangs them on the wall. I have done the same with ceramic sculptures. I leave the area I am gong to bond unglazed, and it works fine.

I have been doing ceramics for about ten years now, mostly as a hobby. I like to incorporate metal and gemstones into my pieces which I electroform. I develop my own glazes and try to keep to a waxy or semi-mat finish. I like the "arts and crafts" look and the subdued glazes they used on their pieces. Fire mostly to cone 5-6
Lately I have been working more on combining ceramics, metal, wood and even weavings into sculptural pieces.
