Sometimes pots break during the bisque firing. Usually because I haven’t allowed them to dry enough. If the bottom breaks out, I keep it. I glaze it, and then later, when I have extra room in the kiln, I’ll fire it again. It lets me try things with the glaze that I might not want to risk on an intact pot.

They go into the aquarium, and the fish make them their homes. I still get to display them in my home and look at them. It ties back into what I always say about shipwrecks. And imperfections.
