This "Synthesis of Winter" charger picked up a crack too. Six out of ten of these big plates have bit the dust.
As you can see, I tried drilling holes around the foot to no avail. Oh well, I am resigned to getting what I get. Aaron, next year we do things a bit differently. Send me an email when you read this. (Aaron is somewhere in Europe and I have yet to hear from him.) All is forgiven.
Below is how the pot looks after it is glazed and ready to be fired. I think it look beautiful just like this. (It is pretty obvious I think like a painter. In fact, I am going to be painting outdoors with a friend in a couple weeks.)
And I can usually tell how great the pot will be when I see it at this stage. However, the entire first batch of pots I fired- including the one pictured above and below- all had to have a reglaze. They didn't quite meet expectations.

Here is the first wiseria charger in the process of being glazed.
I have been firing up a number of charms.
Here is the first plate up on the wall. It is glazed front and back. Nice, huh? It leads the way for the next one. Looks just as nice on a table. Can't wait to use it for a big gathering and have it covered with food. As things are eaten, it will reveal itself.
