repair cuts / scratches in china and pottery

Recommended Posts

I am fond of my good china (Lenox) and every day (Sonoma, Oatmeal) and have lots of service pieces. Over the years it has some cuts and scratches as well as the Sonoma has crazing in the glaze.  Is there any remedy I can do at home? I read about cold glaze,  baking in the oven. But have not found specific directions if it will work on my dishware. ?

You could, in theory, refire the pieces to get the scratches to melt out, however you'd have to know the firing temp the used when making it, and it would probably change the look of the pieces. Unfortunately, dishes wear out over time.

Thank you Neil. I actually thought of that and put an ad on Nextdoor.com to see if any one had a kiln or where I could have it done. No one answered. I know the cone - 4 to be refired.  The price of replacement pieces for my pattern ( so many service pieces that are fine)  dictate that it would be economically feasible to refire them. Maybe I should buy a kiln!!! I  tried one patterned piece years ago.  just to try. Awful, it ran and faded not usable.  I will seek a place to refire one piece. (Sarasota FL)  Thanks
