The one where Moxie seems to have a lot of bad luck....

You guys remember that skull I made about a week ago?

Well, while it was being fired in the kiln, it fused itself to the shelf... and cracked on the top of it's... head.

Just my luck, right?

At least the pottery shop is giving me another opportunity to paint another piece of pottery just like it, for free.

I guess I have to look on the bright side, but it's still a bummer that all that work went to nothing.

Then yet, we'll see. They aren't throwing my skull away, so I am still going to take it home and see what I can do about it.

I have no idea if it is possible to cut through pottery, but if I can just find a way to do cut a hole around the crack without damaging the rest of the skull, then I could make a planter or something out of it.

So there would be a double bright side... NO! Triple.

1) I'd get to have fun painting another piece of pottery FOR FREE.
2) I still get my original skull, and I may get a planter out of it too.
3) I may learn something new.

So, wish me luck, and if you have any idea how to cut into pottery... Then SPEAK UP. :) Please and thank you!

Much love,

cut into pottery uses a VERY VERY sharp knife =D
