When I logged in, I saw only one reply to your post. The reason  is that  Chris pretty much gave a complete answer. Glaze "fit" problems are a reality for all of us who work with clay. You need to follow Chris's advice and work through the problem. 



PS If you are new to clay, your piece looks pretty nice. If you get a little crackle in the glaze of a non-functional object, just think of it as a "feature".  :)   and work from there. The whole ceramics form of Raku rises or falls based on the intentional crackle pattern of the glaze.

I'm not to worried about the squirrels... The neighbors bird bath was knocked over by a bear. 


Thanks for all the good advice. I'll have another go at it and try out some of the suggestions.

The proximity of your hand to the belt drive in the vid,  looks like an accident waiting to happen. Maybe you should move over to the other side to dump the rocks in.
