Glaze is like Trousers

Claybuddies is a Facebook group that is very important for learning new things, and for getting constructive feedback on pieces.

Recently a photo was posted that asked why a glaze had begun “cracking off”.  In a few brief comments I learned to look at glaze in a new light… “Glaze is like trousers.”  Imagine that! LOL   Here is the fuller comment: “…Glaze is like trousers. Too small for the pot and it splits (crazing) too big and it falls off (shivering).

 

I am grateful for the opportunities to learn more… about anything.
