Broken base after firing cone 6


Recommended Posts

Years ago, I had some pieces that blew out in the bottom. I ground out the base area and created  cup forms for the bases. These did fit together well, and the join area tapered as it was did not look like anything more than an undercut line on the foot ring. It worked, but with all the effort it took, I decided that future problems like that were best solved by throwing a new one. However, the effort taught me a few things about precision, wet/dry shrinkage and joining.

 

best,
