I got my hands on some nifty epoxy putty called Apoxie that has simplified pot repair for me. It behaves like clay, has along working time, and doesn’t shrink. After the hole or crack is filled and sanded down, I go over the crack with Cashew Lacquer and sprinkle gold powder, or just mix the powder in to the lacquer and thin, then paint on. The hardest part for me is getting a nice thin even line. Here are pictures of two pieces, a bowl and a small sculptural piece.

I’ll make a wooden base for the sculpture, along the lines of what you might expect from a suiseki piece.
