I think the crucial flaw in this bowl was the temperature at which I glazed it. It was in the upper hundreds on glazing day, and the pieces absorbed thick layers of glaze. I tried to feather some of it off by rubbing it with my finger once it was dry, but it wasn’t enough. Now I have a broken bowl that doesn’t look that nice. It still holds water, so I will keep it and try to think of an outside use for it.
